TRIACCA VALTELLINA SUPERIORE ‘SASSELLA’ REGION: LOMBARDY SUB-REGION: VALTELLINA DOCG BODY: LIGHT-MEDIUM, CRISP DECANT: YES VARIETAL(S): 100% NEBBIOLO FOOD PAIRINGS: VERSATILE 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.
