Conti Sertoli Salis is one of the most prestigious and reference production companies in Valtellina since its birth in 1989.
The company is based in Tirano where both the production structure are located, and the nearby Palazzo Salis, the Conti Sertoli Salis, in fact, has linked its name to the production of wine for over four hundred years: since the mid-1600s the noble family it supplied the Court of the Habsburg Emperor and some noble Graubünden families in Valtellina with the finest Valtellina wines.
The terraced vineyards extend on the Rhaetian side (with east-west orientation and north exposure) for about fifty km and even reach 700 m. of altitude. The terraced vineyard has a very particular microclimate: during the winter it is difficult for the ground to freeze and the snow to resist for long. Given the conformation and position of the terraces, the care of the vineyard is done manually, as is the harvest; in some cases the vineyards, in fact, can be reached with a 30-minute uphill walk. On the line of continuity and respect for local production traditions, Conti Sertoli Salis, also through careful technical and historical research, has achieved the recovery of ancient native vines and enhanced particular methods of winemaking, in order to obtain and produce quality wines that are an expression of the territory. In these vineyards the Nebbiolo grape (Chiavennasca variety) finds the right environment to develop its potential with great elegance and finesse.
The production includes the most important types provided for by the production regulations. Important wines, which stand out in the wine scene for their quality level and their excellence. Visiting Valtellina means discovering an authentic land, rich in charm and centuries-old traditions, immersing yourself in highly suggestive landscapes and scenery, and tasting ancient flavors and excellent wines.
