Features and curiosity

Produced only with Nebbiolo grapes, locally called "Chiavennasca", carefully selected from our historic vineyards. Al Carmine® takes his name from the characteristic church that dominates one of the best zones of Valtellina: the Inferno (hell), the smallest of four subzones of Valtellina Superiore D.O.C.G. Forceful and generous, this classic Inferno is born from Nebbiolo grapes produced by our estate in particular vineyards situated where the high inclination of soil and the high temperatures in summer make cultivation a very hard work. A "hell work" as the viticulturists say! According to the disciplinary measures for "Valtellina Superiore D.O.C.G." production a wine can be given the qualify of "Riserva" only after refining of 36 months, 12 of them in oak barrels.
