The vintage

Like the previous year, the 2021 wine year in Valtellina was characterized by persistent rainfall, which forced us to be very vigilant about plant protection. However, with a lot of time, great efforts and rigorous selection in the vineyard, we were able to bring in grapes of excellent quality. From an enological point of view, the wet vintage meant that the grapes produced a fresh and fruity must, as in 2020, which opens up interesting prospects for a very pleasant wine.
