Triacca is a family business. Both our family home and the
business are situated in Campascio, in the Swiss valley of
Poschiavo. The vineyards and the winery are just across the
border in Italy, in the nearby Valtellina and in Tuscany.
The production facilities are situated 5 kilometres away in
the valley, at Villa di Tirano. Here the grapes from 45
hectares (112.5 acres) of vines are vinified, of which La
Gatta has the lion’s share with 13 hectares (32.5 acres).
We also own 10 hectares (25 acres) in Sassella, 9 hectares
(22.5 acres) in Valgella and Tirano and 4 hectares (10
acres) in Villa di Tirano. Triacca winery has operated
since 1897.
The Nebbiolo is to the Valtellina as the Sangiovese to
Tuscany. Sassella is a particularly remarkable site –
steep, stony and sun-baked. The Nebbiolo grapes, which
ripen here, give this wine a powerful structure. The soft
tannins are harmoniously interwoven. Fruit aromas are
intense but with great finesse. Sasso means stone, and
countless small rocky terraces are one of the particular
features of the site. In the middle there is a little
chapel, also known as Sassella.
