2017 vintage

Among the vineyards of Valtellina was born La Spia, whose name is linked to the eponymous rocky rib located in the sub-area Sassella, a spotting and control post since the time of domination of Graubünden.

100% Nebbiolo (Chiavennasca) from this quality, unique region in Lombardy, Valtellina offers a more perfumed, high-toned and aromatic expression of this classic grape of Barolo.

French oak barrels for 38 months, then refined in the bottle for another 12 months. Earthy aromas of leather, truffle and ripe dark-skinned fruit mingle with whiffs of violet and baking spice. On the palate, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity support raspberry compote, orange zest and licorice before finishing on a note of dried wild herbs.
