Valtellina Superiore DOCG grumello Vigna Le Prudenze

Our Le Prudenze vineyard is found between 450 and 650 metres above sea level. At these altitudes the Breva (afternoon wind coming from Lake Como) dissipates the overnight mist as the day progresses, drying the grape and limiting the growth of fungal diseases. This, therefore, allows for the over-ripening of Nebbiolo grapes until early November, so that the concentration of sugars and the reduction of organic acids (especially Malic acid) give the wine tannic and velvety characteristics. The hearty dishes of Italian cuisine enhance the characteristics of this wine, whose production is limited to less than 9,000 bottles a year
