Brand Rainoldi

Wine of great elegance, produced only in favourable vintage years from a selection of the best Nebbiolo grapes. The bunches are left to dry up on the drying ranks at 500m high, in Ca’ Rizzieri’s loft, that offers a dry and aired climate. Fermentation and maturation take place in new barrels for 16 - 18 months. After that, bottle ageing takes place; it is of vital importance and it lasts for over 12 months in cool, dark cellars.

Wine Spectator

Wine Spectator 94 points - An appealing note of sweet and tarry pipe smoke heralds this bright, elegant red, along with flavors of dried raspberry, spiced orange peel, fig cake and wild sage. Shows fine concentration without excessive weight, while silky tannins provide sleek definition. Drink now through 2029. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,150 cases made, 30 cases imported.

Wine Advocate 94 points - The 2015 Sfursat di Valtellina Fruttaio Ca’ Rizzieri is made from a special selection of Chiavennasca (or Nebbiolo) grapes that are air-dried on mats in the traditional fruttaio Ca’ Rizzieri building located 500 meters above sea level. Mountain breezes fuel steady ventilation and keep the clusters healthy. The wine is fermented in barrique and aged in new oak for up to 18 months with an additional year in bottle. This is a mid-weight wine that offers loads of power (with 15.5% alcohol) that spreads clear over the palate. It shows dried berry aromas of cassis and cranberry with subtle tones of bacon fat and campfire ash at the back. This is the proverbial apres-ski wine to warm your bones after a long day outdoors in the snow. Some 12,912 750-milliliter bottles, 600 magnums and 70 double magnums were produced
