The best Nebbiolo grapes are dried for 2 months in the “fruttaio” a ventilated area on the top floor of the CasaClima Wine cellar.

The fruit caresses the palate and brings an extended feeling of warmth, best shared in good company. The label portrays the ancestry of the court and it's people.

From grapes grown in the Valtellina Superiore area in the districts of Berbenno, Sondrio, Montagna e Teglio, between 350 and 500 metres above sea level

Tasting Notes

A dark garnet-red color alongside orange overtones. Pronounced varietal and persistent aromas, polished spicy edges of vanilla and hints of dried fruit and flowers. It has a warm, dry, silky, soft and persistent flavor, with lingering sensation of jam. This is a wine of great delicacy. Garnet red color with orange highlights. Pronounced aroma with elegant spicy notes of vanilla and hints of fruit in liquer and dried flowers . Warm flavour, dry and persistent with a beautiful freshness.
