The Valtellina Superiore Inferno Fiamme Antiche DOCG speaks to us of granitic rock heated in the sun, soaring up into the air like a flame, filling our nostrils with its heady fragrance. The warmth is the secret of the perfect ripening of the grapes, which come exclusively from steep, sun-drenched slopes in the municipality of Poggiridenti. A Nebbiolo with finely textured tannins and a lively freshness, with a bouquet of Alpine herbs and of the earth it comes from. Its colour recalls a true Maranello red, but the steep Arboleé road, which from the third curve of the "Inferno Circuit", leads to the vineyard, is apparently not suited to racing cars...

The 2015 Valtellina Superiore Inferno Fiamme Antiche is a gorgeous expression of Nebbiolo from Valtellina. Crushed flowers, herbs, mint, licorice, tobacco and orange peel give the 2015 lovely shades of nuance to play off its mid- weight structure. Ethereal and wonderfully translucent, the 2015 is both complete and delicious.
