A wine which imagines what it would be like to make sforzato style fortified wines (Amarone, for example) half way up the side of a mountain. This is Nebbiolo from and old vineyard, allowed to dry on the vine before being harvested and transformed into this beautifully balanced wine which shows just a hint of sweet, warming fruits.

The Perego family has been tending vines on these sheer granite terraces in the mountainous Valtellina since 1860. The vines are so far north into the alps they are practically in Switzerland. They work only with Nebbiolo, growing the grapes up to 700 metres above sea level on sheer, south-facing, sunlit vines that dig straight into rock. The resulting fruit is intensely mineral. Everything in the vineyard is done by hand, leaving the wines to rest until they are deemed ready for release.
