- Wine Features
Produced using the special technique of appassimento, Sfursat is perhaps the type that most identifies with Valtellina and its viticulture. The result is a red wine of great depth, rich, full and enveloping. Complex like few other Italian red wines, Aldo Rainoldi's Sfursat di Valtellina DOCG is a wine whose longevity is perhaps its most important characteristic. Left to mature for a year and a half in large oak casks, it is then refined in the bottle for at least 12 months before release.
