Why we love it
A great red wine made with Nebbiolo grapes grown on the slopes of the Dolomites in the Valtellina and a small percentage, only 10%, of Syrah to add spices and fruit.
The grapes are manually harvested and then aged in small French barrels, second passage, already used, as to preserve the characteristics of the grapes and avoid the “wood” flavour to overtake the wine. Once the wine completes the ageing process, it is left in the bottle for an additional 18 months before being released.
The result is a fantastic red wine with a nose of spice and red fruit hints, full bodied, a very smooth palate with soft tannins, and despite Syrah being only 10%, it adds to the Nebbiolo without taking anything away.
A very versatile red wine, 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.
