Sassella Riserva Nebbiolo 2015 – Rainoldi
Red fruit of great depth and length with notes of nuts, cherry, and plum. Earthy with hints of tar and spice. The wine is matured for 2 years in small Slavonic oak barrels and develops a particularly well-balanced character after two or three years. It is well-balanced on the palate with a long, velvety finish.

At the beginning of the 1920s, Valtellina found itself in a context of poverty and emigration. A strong desire to emerge led Aldo Rainoldi to start his own business as a wine merchant in 1925.
In the second half of the 1950s, his son Giuseppe decided to join him. The growth in quality began with the purchase of grapes instead of wine, just as the sale in bottles replaced that in chestnut barrels.
At the end of the Nineties, after completing his studies in viticulture and oenology, Aldo Rainoldi, Giuseppe’s nephew, joined the company to continue the family tradition. The aim is to combine qualitative growth with respect for the environment, leading the company to the next generation. Valtellina is a unique territory, rich in history, culture and biodiversity. It is located in the far north of Italy, in Lombardy, in a unique climatic position. It is considered the most important mountain vine-growing region in Italy, the third in Europe. It is the second largest Nebbiolo producing region in the world.
