This characterful red wine is obtained from carefully selected grapes, grown in the small and rocky sub-area of Valtellina Superiore known as Inferno. Coarse when young, these grapes tend to harmonise after a long period of ageing in small Slavonic oak barrels. The wine is a ruby colour with a grainy tendency and an orangey reflection. It has a delicate and ethereal aroma due to the characteristic hint of hazelnuts. It tastes dry and well-balanced with a well-judged amount of tannins.

The producer

Valtellina is a noble wine-making area with ancient traditions. Traditions that are not ignored by the wine-makers at Rainoldi. Considerable experience and a well-developed knowledge of wine-making techniques allow Rainoldi to fully realise the potential of the Valtellinesi grapes and obtain superior wines with delicate and refined characteristics.

Best with

This wine is perfect with red meat and in particular with game and mature cheeses.

How to serve it

It is recommended to open the bottle two or three hours before serving. The wine should be served at 18 - 20 degrees centigrade. The best glasses to use are clear, transparent crystal goblets.

How to keep

This wine can be aged for quite some time, more than ten years, if it is kept in an ideal environment. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.
