Rosso di Valtellina
The Rosso di Valtellina is the youngest and freshest expression of the whole territory, obtained mainly from the most widely cultivated vine in the area, Nebbiolo, known locally as Chiavennasca. It represents the most widespread DOC on the Rhaetian side, which includes more than hundreds of hectares cultivated even in the most inaccessible and difficult areas. In Valtellina, the term 'heroic viticulture' is used because the vines grow on steep, rugged terrain, organised in small terraces supported by dry stone walls, at altitudes of over 700 metres. Harvesting is traditionally carried out by hand and requires hard work, sweat and passion. As a result, this red wine is the purest and simplest anthem of this land, and with its fragrant and carefree character, it is a perfect candidate as an everyday wine for every meal!
