Triacca RISERVA LA GATTA Valt.Sup.DOCG
Valtellina Superiore D.O.C.G.
Product by: Casa Vinicola Triacca S.A.
For the Riserva, are selected only the ripest grapes from the best sites and then the grapes are carefully vinified. On the whole these are harvested later than the rest of the estate’s grapes. The long-matured Riserva has a complex, spicy nose with wonderful, leathery overtones. The wine is round and full-bodied on the palate.
The Riserva matures for several years in these large casks. The expert chooses whether to mature the wines in the cask, or whether to favour bottle ageing. For Riserva wines, the law prescribes lengthy cask-ageing. In the Valtellina this is set at three years. During this period the aromas undergo a subtle transformation. Acidity and tannins are reduced and united in exquisite harmony. A harmonious, beautifully balanced wine, powerfully built but nevertheless with great finesse.
