Dirupi was founded in 2004 in the mountainous region of Valtellina in Lombardy just south of the Swiss border. The founders, Pierpaolo Di Franco and Davide Fasolini, are two long time childhood friends that crossed paths once again when they were both completing enology degrees at university. Neither had inherited land so they combined what little resources they had upon completion of their degrees and rented 15 different terraced sites in Valtellina devoted to Chiavennasca. 

Their vineyards are scattered across Sondrio, Montagna, Poggiridenti, Grumello and Inferno. Typical to the region, all sites vary in some degree when it comes to exposure and altitude, but the terraces are predominantly sandy and poor. Organic fertilizers are used, wild ground cover is trimmed back with scythes, and naturally all harvesting is done by hand. Plots are harvested as individual lots and brought down the slope to be vinified together based on the altitude of the vineyards the fruit came from.

Tasting Note:
The Ole Rosso di Valtellina is the entry point into the Dirupi range but do not be mistaken, there is loads to like about this wine. It is 100% Nebbiolo with fruit taken from all 17 of their vineyards. The delicate floral aromatics are all classically Nebbiolo combined with the strawberry, cranberry and rose petals Nebbiolo drinkers have come to love. The palate is mid-weighted and brimming with vibrant acidity, powdery tannins, sweet red fruits, spice and dried herbs. 
A fresh and pure wine with strong regional identity. Valtellina needs to be on your must have list after trying this.

This is a Dry, Medium+ bodied wine with High acidity and High tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
