The "Quadrio" is a Valtellina Superiore which takes its name from the historic Castello Quadrio belonging to the governor of the Valtellina of the fifteenth century. The nose recalls aromas of small fruits, such as cherry, raspberry and miritilli, notes of aromatic spices, mountain herbs and light nuances of roasting coffee and cocoa.The taste is full and generous, with good freshness and dense tannins
