Descrizione vino

100% Nebbiolo grapes cultivated in the property of Mamete Prevostini cellar. “Valtellina Superiore Sassella Marena” was born in the cities of Castione and Sondrio. The manual harvest starts after the first decade of October. 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. 13 days maceration on skins at 25°C, followed by malolactic fermentation in oak barrels and 12 months aging. The maturation continues in the bottle for 8 months.
