Valtellina always manages to amaze with its nebbiolo: wines that are always played on finesse and elegance, without ever losing the expressiveness of chiavennasca. This wine is born in Valtellina Superiore, in vineyards ranging from 300 to 650 meters above sea level. Traditional vinification and maturation in second passage barriques for about a year. Before being released on the market, Aldo Rainoldi's Valtellina Superiore DOCG "Prugnolo" ages for another 9 months. A glass that expresses the characteristics of chiavvenasca well from an early age, but which can give great satisfaction with aging.
