Why we love it
A great red wine made with Nebbiolo grapes grown on the slopes of the Dolomites with a small percentage of Syrah to add spices and fruit.
The grapes are manually harvested, due to the location of the vineyards, and then aged in small French barrels, second passage as to preserve the characteristics of the grapes and producing a wine that does not require plenty of ageing in the bottle.
The result is a red wine with a nose with vanilla hints and red fruits, a full bodied, smooth palate with soft tannins. Very versatile, can pair a pasta dish as well as game
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.
