- Wine Features
The Nebbiolo grapes used to produce Rainoldi's Valtellina Superiore Riserva Grumello come from a special area called "Dossi Salati" within the commune of Sondrio.
These are the vineyards of Grumello Castle with the highest altitudes and therefore the best sunshine.
The panorama of Valtellina and Valmalenco is truly enchanting with the suggestive background of the Bernina peaks.
To be honest, we consider this Rainoldi red wine a small oenological masterpiece, produced exclusively in the best years and in only 3275 bottles.
