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

The beautiful region of Lombardy in north west Italy may be dominated by the huge metropolitan center of Milan and the industrial areas which surround it, but there is also plenty of unspoilt green space in the region which has proven itself to be ideal for viticulture over the centuries. In particular, the area around the enormous and ever popular Lake Garda has shown itself to be an ideal wine producing region, as the lowlands enjoy cooler temperatures than many of the surrounding areas, which allow grapes to ripen more slowly and fully. The Lake Garda vineyards are most well known for the exceedingly high quality Trebbiano di Laguna grapes, used to make a superb white wine which has become something of a flagship for the region. However, today there are dozens of wineries in Lombardy growing a wide range of red and white grapes, and producing wines of excellent character and flavor.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
