Grumello Rocca de Piro

HomeGrumello Rocca de Piro

Grumello Rocca de Piro

Grumello de Piro comes from vineyards by the Grumello De Piro Castle. It gives its name to this wine, which is made with grapes from the two estate vineyards in the Grumello area. In years when low levels of tannins suggest brief ageing in large barrels, the Valtellina Superiore Grumello Rocca De Piro DOCG is always surprising for the speed with which it becomes ready to drink. And from the moment it makes its debut on the table, it is always on the spot: ready to drink, but also perfect for aging with the reserves in the cellar.
