These grapes are grown in the eastern part of the municipality of Sondrio and the municipality of Montagna in Valtellina, where there is the “Castel Grumello”, which gives its name to the area. Nebbolio 95% and then, for the remaining part, “Merlot”, “Pinot Noir” and local varieties “Rossola” and “Brugnola”.
The fermentation occurs through the maceration of the marc, which is constantly soaked in the must. The maceration lasts about 15-20 days and the temperature is kept controlled at about 28°-30°C, to obtain the best results in aromas and structure. This is followed by decantings to reach the best limpidity, two years of refinement in oak barrels and, at the end, the wine is put
into the bottles, where it remains another 6 months to complete its maturation.
