Inferno Fiamme Antiche

Valtellina Superiore Inferno Fiamme Antiche DOCG speaks to us of granitic rock heated in the sun, soaring up into the air like a flame, filling our nostrils with its heady fragrance. The secret of this prestigious wine lies in the perfect ripeness of the grapes, made possible thanks to the unique sun exposure of the vineyard and the high temperatures reached. It is made only with Nebbiolo grapes coming from the “burning” terraces which the ArPePe family owns, located on the steep and sunny slopes of the Poggiridenti Municipality.
