Nebbiolo of the Alps

The Union for the protection of Valtellina’s wines chose this slogan to underline the indissoluble bond between the refined wine varietal Nebbiolo, the mountain viticulture and the wines of Valtellina born by this union. Nebbiolo is locally known as Chiavennasca and it is considered in every respect Valtellina’s local wine varietal. Among the other varietals of Nebbiolo, we find Pignola, Rossola, Prugnola actually not very known and only added to the grape blend together with Merlot and Pinot nero.
