Rainoldi 'San Gregorio' Rosso di Valtellina DOC 2019
This product is currently sold out.
Valtellina in a glass! This is a timeless wine of incredible purity and alpine herb lift, a perfume that runs through all of Rainoldi's wines. So accessible, so fine - this is the place. Grapes are grown on south facing terraces between 400-600m, hand harvested and aged for 5 months in large format Slavonian oak. The wine has been in production since the 1920s.
"Very alpine in its presentation of aromatic herbs, red fruits, and some smoke and mineral stuff. It’s light bodied, all strawberry and red cherry, a pleasant orange peel bitterness and Campari spice, with cool acidity, dusty feel, and a powdery ash-like finish of very good length. Classic. Valtellina represent. Also, as an aside, tastes a bit like an old school Yarra Pinot Noir, for additional context." Gary Walsh - The Wine Front
