Production

La Tena Riserva Valtellina Superiore is made with grapes from vines with a history of over 50 years of careful tending. A symbol of tradition, inherited from Davide’s paternal grandfather, that merges passion and sacrifice. Tena is named after its vineyard, which stands at Tirano about 650 metres above sea level, with an exposure to the sun that guarantees a wide temperature variation during September and October, vital for the wine’s bouquet and elegance.

Processing

The grapes are harvested around the middle of October and transferred to the winery for completely natural alcoholic fermentation, using only native yeasts, with no addition of cultured yeasts. After about 30/40 days of maceration, the wine is racked and left for about two months in stainless steel tanks, where malolactic fermentation takes place. It is then transferred to casks of French and Slavonian oak, where it is aged for about 24 months, followed by another few months in stainless steel vats. After bottling, ageing is continued for at least a further 12 months.

Colours and bouquet

This process gives us La Tena Riserva Valtellina Superiore, with ruby red colour tending to bright garnet and a bouquet of berries – blackberries and raspberries – and ripe fruit, with spicy notes. Its tannin level is typical of Nebbiolo, and acquires elegance from its lengthy cask ageing. A bouquet of unique fragrances and flavours is achieved, embodying the character of the Valtellina itself.
