To a Swiss like me, the Nebbiolo of Valtellina is the definition of what the variety should be. Mamete Prevostini really know how to get the best from this grape from their top Cuvée to their entry level wines like this one, an IGT wine from the Alpi Retiche IGT Rosso that's oustanding for its price. In Valtellina goes by the name of Chiavennasca.

Tasting Notes

A riot if bright red fruits, think pomegranate, red cherries and some smoky and herbal notes. Lovely balance of fruit and acidity.alpine freshness.
