"Calis" Vino Bianco 2021 - Rivetti & Lauro

Calis is not a classic Valtellina wine. It is, on the contrary, the fruit of fortunate experimentation. Of the meeting, or love marriage, between a white wine from Nebbiolo grapes, the typical Chiavennasca of the upper lake, and a white wine from international grapes. Specifically, it is Sauvignon Blanc, a French variety capable of lending a touch of aromaticity to the final blend. The grapes come from the area of Teglio, in the province of Sondrio. Processing begins with a manual selection of the best bunches, which are brought to the winery to be quickly sent to vinification. It starts with a soft pressing, followed by cold static decantation and fermentation in small stainless steel tanks by means of selected yeasts. At the end of the transformation, the wine ages, again in stainless steel, for a period of about 9 months before bottling. Characterized by a beautiful straw yellow color, the nose reveals an intense and fruity bouquet. In the mouth, however, it reveals character and personality, thanks to the use of Nebbiolo, and that subtle aromaticity that makes it more intriguing. Excellent as an aperitif, it is a fresh and pleasant wine, also easy to accompany with tasty fish dishes.

Rivetti & Lauro is a beautiful winery born from an idea of Alberto Rivetti and Dino Lauro, together to give life to a modern winemaking project. New agronomic techniques in harmony with the environment, attention to detail and ancient craftsmanship allow the two entrepreneurial friends to harvest superior quality grapes year after year. What they certainly do not lack is a good dose of courage, necessary to choose to grow Nebbiolo grapes, here called Chiavennasca, on the steep slopes of the Rhaetian Alps. In this remote corner of Lombardy, each row of vines is rooted in small plots of earthen soil painstakingly wrested from the mountain thanks to typical terracing built over the years. Instead, the winery's headquarters are in Palazzo Torelli, in a beautiful building located in Tirano's historic center. Here the wines mature slowly, until they reach the right complexity. After much effort and years of waiting, the effort of the winemakers is amply repaid the moment the first bottle is uncorked to pour a glass.
