Valtellina Superiore Riserva Inferno DOCG Aldo Rainoldi
The Inferno Riserva DOCG is a red wine of great personality produced by the Rainoldi winery. The vines are selected and cultivated in a little rocky area of the Valtellina Superiore. It is quite rugged when young, then softer and finally harmonic when aged after an aging period in new French oak barrels. The long conservation takes place in bottles kept in fresh and dark cellars. There is a maceration under temperature control with regular pumping over and punching-down. It follows the malolactic fermentation until spring time. Finally it starts the aging period which lasts 16 months in new French oak barrels and finally in bottles for 1 year before being commercialized.
