Other expressions of Valtellina

Not only Sfursat and Valtellina Superiore: the area today offers a range of truly interesting possibilities. As Alpi Retiche Igt Nebbiolo and Rosso di Valtellina Doc well demonstrate, this extraordinary viticulture also gives young red wines boasting the salient characteristics of freshness, fruit and drinkability. Immediacy and softness distinguish Crespino, made from Nebbiolo grapes and a small percentage of Merlot. In the field of white wines, we are fascinated by the constancy of Sauvignon Blanc: a guarantee in terms of sensorial profile and attitude to aging. A ready-to-drink white wine like Zapel completes our offer.
