"Dell'Orco" Sforzato della Valtellina DOCG 2016 - Rivetti & Lauro

Valtellina Superiore DOCG, Sforzato Dell'Orco is a wonderful wine from the territory, an illustrious son of that incredible wine region that borders the northern border of the Lombardy region. Here things get serious and viticulture becomes heroic for real. At harvest time, the best bunches are selected by hand. Even the smallest defect must be avoided since, once they reach the winery, the grapes undergo a slow period of drying in boxes lasting 3 to 4 months before vinification. At the end of this phase, the grapes are first crushed and then sent to the fermentation phase in small stainless steel tanks. This is followed by a long maturation phase of 30 months in first-passage French and American oak tonneaux and barriques. An important wine characterized by a complex bouquet that ranges from spices to raisins, passing through red fruits, flowers and tobacco, in the mouth it reveals ripe tannins and a perfect correspondence with what was perceived previously. Elegant and rich, warm and refined, it is a red of great style and complex structure. Excellent to accompany dishes with strong flavors, it is also perfect as a meditation wine to end an evening with friends on a high note.

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.
