Description

Lombardy, Italy 

Plozza 085 Rosso di Valtellina is a wonderful red of 100% Nebbiolo from the Valtellina region of Lombardy. Plozza traces its roots to 1919, when in Brusio, Switzerland, a few kilometers from Tirano, Italy, the 29-year-old Pietro Plozza quit his job in the Rhaetian Railway and decided to throw himself into the commerce of agricultural products, immediately realizing the potential of Valtellina wine. 

Accessible, fruity and elegant, Plozza 085 Rosso di Valtellina is a limited edition Nebbiolo wine whose name comes from the 10,000-liter chestnut cask in which it has matured for 48 months and that characterizes the label design - a thin wood foil lending a regal appearance to the bottle. 

Fresh and harmonious, this wine amazes for the floral tones’ gentle lightness and for the exciting aromatic and gustatory approach. On the palate it is rich and smooth. 

Plozza 085 Rosso di Valtellina evokes hints of cherries, dried prunes and elderberries and presents a softly voluptuous tannic background. This nectar, resulting from the heroic Valtellina vine growing, one of the hardest and most challenging in the world, perfectly complements red meat, a roast with plum sauce, any homemade meal, and is also an ideal wine to casually sip with good friends.
