Sforzato della Valtellina 'Fruttaio Ca' Rizzieri' Rainoldi 2019

Rainoldi Aldo

The Sforzato  "Fruttaio Ca' Rizzieri" is made from Nebbiolo grapes, locally called Chiavennasca, left to dry on trellises and mature in oak barrels for 15 months. The olfactory intensity is expressed on spicy tones mixed with hints of red fruit under spirits and roasted coffee. The taste is elegant and warm, round and with a very long persistence

The Sforzato of Valtellina "Fruttaio" by Rainoldi is important and a robust red wine, elegant and exclusively produced in favorable years since grapes are sourced from the best vineyards planted with Nebbiolo in sub-areas of terraced Grumello, Valgella and Valtellina Superiore. The "Fruttaio" by Rainoldi is a Sforzato of Valtellina that fully represents the heroic viticulture: the vineyards are literally climbed up and perched on the slopes pendants and more rugged side. The clusters of Sforzato Valtellina "Fruttaio" by Rainoldi are left to dry on racks in "Ca Rizzieri" the higher ‘fruttaio’ of Rainoldi, situated at an altitude of 500 meters above sea level, where the grapes benefit from a dry and breezy climate; a climate that is ideal support for the natural drying of the grapes. Fermentation and aging in new French oak barriques "Allier" for 15 months and in bottle over 12 months. Thus was born Sforzato of Valtellina "Fruttaio" by Rainoldi, a red wine with great structure and elegance, typical garnet red color and intense aroma of spices, fruit in alcohol and hints of coffee, cocoa, toasted hazelnuts and dried grapes. A red wine persuasive, powerful, intense, austere, full and harmonious. A red that matches perfectly to the local game and mature cheeses, but can also be savored as a sipping wine. A great wine.
