The Valtellina Superiore by Dirupi is an elegant and full-bodied red wine, born from old vines on steep slopes, aged for 18 months in oak barrels. Wide and elegant perfumes and an intense, warm and smooth taste expresse the energy of the Nebbiolo from Alps!
The Valtellina Superiore di Dirupi comes from terraced vineyards in the municipality of Montagna in Valtellina, in the province of Sondrio. It is made entirely from Nebbiolo grapes, harvested manually during the month of October. After a soft pressing of the grapes, the fermentation takes place in stainless steel, with maceration on the skins for 15-35 days. The wine ages for 18 months in French oak barrels of Allier and for a small part in barriques. It is followed by a further 6 months in the bottle before the product is put on the market. Ruby red in color, Valtellina Superiore di Dirupi expresses an ethereal bouquet on the nose, which gives way to pleasing notes of red flowers and cherry. On the palate it is fresh and pleasant with good harmony. Excellent with soft cheeses, it is also suitable as an aperitif.
