2018 Boffalora 'Pietrisco' Valtellina Superiore, Piemonte, IT

$45

Intense aromas of red cherry, roses, leather and tar. There is a thrilling level of acidity and tannin in this offering that provide it with that alpine featheriness, a very special wine indeed. 

Boffalora started in 2009 when Giuseppe Guglielmo took over his father-in-law’s precipitous vineyards in Valtellina. Located between two alpine passes to the North East of Milan near the Swiss border, the Valtellina has 2,000 years of viticultural history. The wines are made from the local Nebbiolo grape, called Chiavennasca here. His winery is in a repurposed stable carved in the side of the slope. A believer in balance he is also a beekeeper and promotes biodiversity of the soil and ecoystem with cover crops. Giuseppe is a true artisan doing everything by himself and looks after 3ha of Chiavennasca planted on steep terraced vineyards at altitudes varying between 350m and 700m. Vine ages range from over 70 years to more recent massal plantings and all are located in the Valtellina Superiore.
