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.
