Professional Wine Reviews for Aldo Rainoldi Sfursat Fruttaio Ca Rizzieri 2015

Rated 94 by Wine Advocate
The 2015 Sfursat di Valtellina Fruttaio Ca’ Rizzieri is made from a special selection of Chiavennasca (or Nebbiolo) grapes that are air-dried on mats in the traditional fruttaio Ca’ Rizzieri building located 500 meters above sea level. Mountain breezes fuel steady ventilation and keep the clusters healthy. The wine is fermented in barrique and aged in new oak for up to 18 months with an additional year in bottle. This is a mid-weight wine that offers loads of power (with 15.5% alcohol) that spreads clear over the palate. It shows dried berry aromas of cassis and cranberry with subtle tones of bacon fat and campfire ash at the back. This is the proverbial apres-ski wine to warm your bones after a long day outdoors in the snow. Some 12,912 750-milliliter bottles, 600 magnums and 70 double magnums were produced.

Winery Aldo Rainoldi

Region: Lombardy

Lombardy is a stunning region of north west Italy, and is home to many of the country's finest white wines. In particular, the wines made from grapes grown on the shores of the expansive and unspoilt Lake Garda have come to be regarded as the finest of the region, and the Trebbiano di Laguna grapes grown there are capable of expressing their wondrous terroir, alongside their crisp and fresh fruit flavors and aromas. In recent decades, wineries in Lombardy have been keen to expand their portfolio, and plenty of French Bordeaux vines were planted, bearing varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. As such, Lombardy today produces a wide range of excellent wines, packed full of fascinating characteristics and classic flavors which are popular around the world.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
