Why we love it
A fantastic dessert wine, passito, made with Nebbiolo grapes growth in vineyards located in the slopes of the Valtellina mountains.
The grapes are harvested and then dried, appassimento, to concentrate the fruit and enhance aromas and flavours, and then vinified. The result is a great red dessert wine, with a complex nose, fresh and structured on the palate, a perfect companion with cheeses or drunk on its own as a meditation wine
The artisan who made it
Rivetti & Lauro is a dream come true. The Valtellina is a mountainous area with vineyards planted on terraces where everything is done manually, including harvesting, and in these mountains Rivetti & Lauro, two friends, decided to follow their dream and passion and making wine. The Nebbiolo is their main grape, Nebbiolo is a great grape that gives it best on these extreme climates, vinified in red and white, but are slowly introducing new grapes to be blended with the Nebbiolo to produce even more outstanding wines.
