Rosso di Valtellina, Dislivelli 2020
Gian Piero farms one hectare in Valtellina’s most prestigious cru: Sassella. His vines are in the ‘Rocce Rosse’ subzone, a small area characterised by iron-rich soils, red gravel and a bit of clay. The steep slope is at about 30 degree inclination and overlooks the beautiful Valtellina valley near the town of Sondrio. He farms biodynamically but takes it further and never tills/ploughs the soils. Over the course of many years this leads to a self balancing ecosystem and much better resilience.
This tiny plot of land produces extremely expressive and healthy grapes from which he is able to make this red nectar.
