"Gias" Vino Bianco 2020 - Rivetti & Lauro

Gias is a white wine from Valtellina, produced and offered here by Rivetti & Lauro. This is an interesting experimentation by the beautiful Lombardy winery that comes from a marriage of Nebbiolo, in its Chiavennasca variety, and Chardonnay. Grapes from the Tirano area, in the province of Sondrio, where the vineyards are raised on small terraces carved out of the steep mountain slopes. It starts with a manual selection of the grapes, which, once they reach the winery, are soft-pressed to obtain a rich, sugary must. This is followed by a slow phase of cold static decantation and, after the inoculation of selected yeasts, fermentation, which in this case takes place in small stainless steel tanks. This is followed by about 9 months of aging in steel and oak barrels. A pleasant, harmonious and well-balanced white, it is a wine characterized by a nice complex drinkability, soft and intense.

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.
