Grumello Valtellina Superiore DOCG 2019 - Rainoldi

For once, Nebbiolo is not the protagonist in Piedmont but in Valtellina. Here, under the name of Chiavennasca, the noble grape used to make great red wines is used to produce Valtellina Superiore, one of the 5 regional DOCGs. In this case, the Rainoldi winery offers the version from the Grumello sub-zone, which includes the municipalities of Sondrio and Montagna in Valtellina. Just under 100 hectares of a fascinating and unique territory. The particular "verticality" of this area, in fact, means that vineyards can be found as early as 350 metres above sea level. But also at over 650 metres, in the highest part called Dossi Salati. The wines produced here are particularly fresh and fruity. The one proposed by Rainoldi is the result of a slow maceration at a controlled temperature, cadenced by cycles of pumping over and punching down. The wine is then placed in steel tanks while waiting for the malolactic fermentation to be completed by spring. It then matures for about eighteen months in Slavonian oak casks, followed by a few fundamental months of bottle ageing. Ruby red, the nose is astonishing for its delicate scents of fresh fruit and subtle hints of hazelnut. In the mouth it is fresh and harmonious. Full-bodied, it is an excellent drinking wine. It goes well with white and red meats, vegetables and medium-aged cheeses.

Aldo Rainoldi began his profession as a wine merchant in Chiuro, in the heart of the Valtellina, in 1925. We are living in a dark period. A time when those who could leave the valley to seek their fortune elsewhere. There is no work and life is definitely hard. Fortunately, Aldo's fortunes seemed to be going in a different direction, so much so that in the mid-1950s his son Giuseppe decided to join him in the family business. The turning point came when the decision was made to stop buying wine and buy grapes directly to produce it according to one's own taste. This was also the moment when they began to sell the wine in bottles and no longer in chestnut barrels. The direct consequence was an expansion of the market, first in Italy and then abroad. At the end of the 1990s, a new Aldo joined the company. He is the grandson of Giuseppe, in the sign of family continuity. Today Rainoldi is one of the most appreciated wine cellars in Valtellina.
