Rosso Di Valtellina 2018

This is mostly Chiavennasca, the local name for Nebbiolo. Cherry, black pepper. Balanced tannins and great acidity. Fermented in a mix of concrete and stainless steel, then aged for 9 months before an additional 3 months in bottle. — 8 months ago

Sassella Il Glicine Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo

Unbelievably light and smooth for a young “Nebbiolo”, but of course this is “Chiavennasca” and we are in Lombardia, not the Langhe. Pretty cranberry and blackberry notes with a hint of of something herbal/vegetal. — 2 years ago

Rustic elegance, great purity. Structured, lovely finish. Iron, graphite, cherry liqueur, welcoming bitterness, light tannic undergirding. This is their entry-level—LOL #arpepe — 5 months ago

Beautiful, nimble, aromatic Nebbiolo (chiavennasca), supposedly a more structured subzone but still very pretty and feminine. Slightly corked. — 3 years ago


Stella Retica Sassella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2015

Lovely alpine Nebbiolo from a terrific producer. This is a different animal than your Langhe Nebbiolo... there’s some additional ripeness, minerality, and rusticity, an expression of place and perhaps this local derivative of Nebbiolo: Chiavennasca — 4 months ago

Riserva Sassella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo

Black Truffle ravioli, heirloom tomatoes, and farm fresh kale went perfectly with this properly aged Valtellina Nebbiolo. It has truffle and aged salumi with baked plum and smoky cherry bursting aromatically alongside violet and briny plum reduction. A corned beef and grilled pork along with ground steak skimming. Amazing. Blood orange dried bing and cran, dried violet, cedar and light tobacco, clove, and lightest graphite. This is elegant as a samurai sword with the blacksmith residue to prove it, Rose petal, and a hemp resin moment tamed by cinnamon. Incredible on all levels. #rainoldi #rainoldivaltellina #valtellina #valtellinasuperiore #sassellareserva #nebbiolo #chiavennasca — 9 months ago
