Nebbiolo is the noblest of Italian grapes and is most famous for the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco, but don't sleep on the ambition of the lesser-known regions among the foot of the Alps. The Valtellina is known for its terraced vineyards and pure expression of terroir. A nuanced and aromatic wine with bracing acidity and tannins, this is an approachable style that will bring you new enlightenment in your appreciation of this grape.

Wine Enthusiast

Initially shy, the subtle nose eventually reveals new leather, Alpine herb and wild berry. The savory palate has an understated elegance, offering Marasca cherry, pomegranate and graphite alongside refined tannins. Drink through 2027.
