Grumello Valtellina Superiore DOCG 2019 - Triacca Tenuta La Gatta

Valtellina Superiore DOCG, this interesting wine produced by Triacca is the son of the Lombardy winery. The Grumello sub-zone, between the municipalities of Sondrio and Montagna, has a vineyard extension of about 78 hectares. Its name derives from Grumello Castle, a 13th century fortress that dominates the valley. Among the Valtellina wines, Grumello is generally easier to drink and also lends itself to being drunk younger than Nebbiolo (Chiavennasca) from other areas. However, this does not detract from the fact that it is a wine with good ageing potential. In the glass it has a beautiful ruby red colour of medium intensity tending towards garnet. The bouquet is subtle and intense, with nuances reminiscent of almonds. In the mouth, it is dry and velvety. Rich in fragrances, slightly tannic, savoury and harmonious. It ideally accompanies roasts and young cheeses.

A historic family business, Triacca is based in Campascio, Valposchiavo, Switzerland. The vineyards, and 'the' cellars, however, are located in Italy. In particular La Gatta in Valtellina, La Madonnina in Chianti Classico, Santavenere in Montepulciano. Winemakers since 1897, Triacca wines regularly score high marks in the most renowned wine guides. Today, the company is managed by brothers Giovanni and Luca, exponents of the fourth generation. Luca is oenologist and wine production manager. Giovanni runs the winery. With them is Uncle Rino, the 'old guard', who still welcomes visitors to La Gatta with his well-known friendliness and passion.
