Back at Lake Como and in needed of some red wine to warm up the body. I decided to kick things off with the local alpine Nebbiolo (known locally as Chiavennasca) from Valtellina, which lies just north of Lake Como. My favourite producer is of course @arpepe1860 , who still works the steep alpine vineyard manually (heroic viticulture). Grumello is from 50-60 years old vines, with the vineyard lying 380m above sea level. Traditionally made with low intervention, this undergoes long masceration and aged 4 years in large botti.
The 2005 is in a sweet spot right now, intense floral aroma with hint of spice. Refined, fresh, elegant with good complexity, engaging acidity and sleek minerality. I really do love this wine so much and it’s such a shame that I can only taste it 1-2 times a year.
