Our wines

We have three kind of wines: all of them are red and come from Nebbiolo grapes.

They are: Valtellina Superiore d.o.c.g. “Le Strie”; Sforzato di Valtellina d.o.c.g. “Le Strie”; Terrazze Retiche di Sondrio Nebbiolo i.g.t. “Sassifraga”.
Our wines are traditional ones and they express the unique features of Nebbiolo grapes grown in the terroir Valtellina.

In order to make fine wines, we keep the yelds low: on average, 60 quintals per hectare.
We could be allowed, by law, to reach 80 quintals per hectare.

As for vinification process, we work in a traditional way.
It means that for making Valtellina Superiore d.o.c.g. and Sforzato d.o.c.g. the grapes are crushed, destemmed and fermented in stainless steel vats and then allowed to mature in large oak barrels.
As for The Terrazze Retiche di Sondrio Nebbiolo i.g.t., the grapes are fermented and matured in stainless steel vats.
