Why you should come to Valtellina
Valtellina is a unique territory, rich in history, culture and biodiversity. It is located in the far north of Italy, in Lombardy, in a special climatic position. It is considered the most important mountain vine-growing region in Italy, the third in Europe. It is the second largest Nebbiolo producing region in the world.
The mountains are said to put their signature on the wines of Valtellina and, not surprisingly, the Nebbiolo grapes from this valley express the rocks and mountain.
For this reason, it is unique, special, elegant, contemporary, but at the same time, beyond time and timeless. In Valtellina, the vineyards hang from the mountains, suspended on spectacular terraces made of dry-stone walls.
They are nestled in the woods, able to capture and store the heat of the sun. A sort of Mediterranean scrub in the heart of the Alps, where cacti, agaves and olive trees grow.
This biodiversity typical of Valtellina transmits a "Valtellina style" to the grapes and wines, a style projected into the future, designed with the values of sustainability, respectful of nature and the environment.
However, good ideas only have a future if they have a story to tell, if they are able to interpret people's values, desires and aspirations. Since 1925, the Aldo Rainoldi Winery has been all this, a dynamic relationship with the past that has allowed us to always marvel at the future.
