Grumello Sant’Antonio Riserva
Grumello is not a village but an area immediately above and east of town of Sondrio. The terraced vineyards rise up as high as 670 meters, a full 365m above the Adda river valley floor. Within the Grumello zone, just east of the Rocca de Pirro vineyard, is the church of Sant’Antonio a Montagna in Valtellina. For centuries, this structure has protected the vineyards below it that stretch down the Risc di Sassina, This vineyard yields some of the most generous fruit from the Grumello.
Sant’Antonio a Montagna in Valtellina also holds a special place in the hearts of the Pelizzatti Perego family because it was there the current generation’s mother and father were married 4 September 1969. In 2009, Isabella and Guido decided to celebrate their parents 40th wedding anniversary by making a single vineyard wine from this parcel.
