Descrizione vino

Riserva Valtellina Superiore DOCG by Mamete Prevostini is produced with 100% Nebbiolo. The grapes are harvested late and selected in the best vineyards located in Sondrio, Montagna and Teglio. The harvest starts at the end of October. Considering the late harvest, the plants are all located at 400 meters above the sea level. During the winemaking, only the best grapes are selected for the pressing, that means that the ruined fruits or those hit by the mould are immediately rejected. After the elimination of stalks, the pressed grapes are poured into steel containers where the alcoholic fermentation starts. 21 days maceration on skins at 25°C, followed by malolactic fermentation in oak barrels and 30 months aging. The maturation continues in the bottle for 12 months.
