Le Tense Sassella, Valtellina Superiore DOCG 2020
13.5% | 750ml
Le Tense is obtained from grapes coming exclusively from the Sassella subzone. During the Swiss domination (1512 – 1797), the best vineyards were “tense”, that is”protected”, by armed guardians: they thus became the most celebrated vineyards. This selection of vines produces a wine that expresses the character of the land: ancient stones and rocks that represent the terroir of Sassella. Nebbiolo tends to produce grapes with elegant aromas and delicate, harmonious flavours typical of mountain wines.
