Valtellina Superiore Grumello "Garof" DOCG Mamete Prevostini
Mamete Prevostini produce this fabulous Rosso della Valtellina Grumello DOCG with 100% Nebbiolo. The vineyards are located in the area Valtellina Superiore Grumello, around the village of Montagna. The harvest starts after the first decade of October.

The maturation continues in the bottle for 8 months.
