Ole Nebbiolo Rosso di Valtellina Dirupi, Natural Nebbiolo, Valtellina ,fresh, delicate Nebbiolo, red fruits and herbs. This particular example of Chiavannasca (the name for Nebbiolo in the region) has hints of tar and a fruity, floral nose. It's lively, clean and elegant, with a a precise palate, smooth tannins and great persistence. A more approachable style than tends to be produced in Barolo. Amazing quality Nebbiolo for a great price from this artisan producer. Enjoy with pasta or grilled meats.

Boutique producer in the Valtellina, the northern most wine producing region of Lombardia. This is a beautiful and extreme wine making region with freezing temperatures in the vineyards in the winter and then very hot summers with a light exposure similar to that in Sicily due to the steep aspect of the south facing vineyards. The Dirupi winery is named after the steepness of their 4.5 hectares of vineyards. Yields and overall production are very low, with 4 labels and a total of only 15000 bottles a year, this is 100% hand crafted wine making. Davide Fasolini and Pierpaolo di Franco work naturally in vineyard and cellar although not classified as organic wine makers. Wild yeasts are used and the sulphur level is very low. The result are very fine precise and characterful Nebbiolos of varying weight and seriousness.
