The Perego family have been tending vines on these sheer granite terraces in the mountainous Valtellina since 1860. The vines are so far north into the alps they are practically in Switzerland. They work only with Nebbiolo, or Chiavennasca as it is called in these parts, growing the grapes up to 700 metres above sea level on sheer, south-facing, sunlit vines that dig straight into rock. The resulting fruit is intensely mineral.

Blazing away. Almond paste, redcurrant and blackcurrant, perhaps some chocolate. Full-bodied, intensity of fruit, ripe but very firm tannin, pixelated and clear, stones and blood, superb length. Complete. Hits the ground from high and lands perfectly poised. Wonderful. Tasted: May 18; Alcohol: 14%; Price: $140; Closure: Cork; Drink: 2022-2045; Rated: 96+ Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
