Valtellina's steep, granitic slopes are so far north that they are practically in Switzerland and the Perego family's Sassella vineyard is an extreme amid extremes. 50-year-old Nebbiolo vines dig straight into the sheer rock at 500-700m above sea level, but remarkably all work here is done painstakingly by hand. Following a forty day maceration, the wine is left to mature for four years in large chestnut casks, which results in an intensely mineral, sanguine iteration of Nebbiolo, wild and ferrous with cool red fruit at its core.
