THE WINE'S STORY

Valtellina is nestled high above Lombardy in Northern Italy, it’s spectacular background is the Swiss Alps and it’s boarder.  It was once considered the last frontier of Italian viticulture because of its challenging climate and viticulture,

it is classic alpine vine growing with vineyards ranging between 400 and 800 metres. The incline on many vineyards here is so dramatic that it makes mechanized harvesting impossible.

 M+Q NOTES

Juicy red and black berries, wildflowers, cedar, and fresh-cut herbs burst on the nose, while the palate is light, tart, and delicious--this is an easy-drinking red! This blend of 90% Nebbiolo with the remainder composed of Merlot, Brugnola, Rossola and Pignola derives from a south-facing vineyard and ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel and ages in oak barrels.
