Rosso di Valtellina DOC, Valtellina, Lombardy
Variety: Nebbiolo100%

When we first made it, we had a clear idea of the magnificent bouquet of flowers and fresh fruit that it would unleash in the cellar during fermentation. Fragrances that would gradually dissipate because of the aging in barriques and become so subtle that they would no longer be the protagonists of the wine. We wanted to fix and portray these fragrances and block them in the bottle so that you too could have fun with this party bouquet. Thus Olé, a wine to be quaffed in abundance! DIRUPI

And fun it is, or perhaps as playful as Nebbiolo can be. It’s light, frisky and floral, fresh strawberries dusted with five spice, crisp acidity, light kitten’s tongue rasp of tannin, and a pretty decent finish. It’s light, certainly, almost a big rosé in some respects, but lovely to drink. GARY WALSH, The Winefront
