Dante's Sixth Canto describes the punishments inflicted on gluttons. The landscape is flailed by eternal rain and Cerberus barks horribly, baring his teeth, but Virgil silences him by filling his mouth with earth.
Here they are in the third circle, just as their vineyard, 450 meters above sea level, is on the third curve of the road known as the “Inferno Circuit”. A circuit that saw Arturo many times racing, in the Valtellina Cup Rally. This was his other great passion and it inspired him to dream of an Inferno Riserva that would celebrate the power, the roaring sound and the discordant growl of a harsh land that leaves one speechless. In 2009 they decided that the time had come to make his dream come true: Valtellina Superiore Inferno Riserva Sesto Canto DOCG.
An amazing vintage, with scratchy tannins, and long aging in chestnut barrels has given us an impressive wine with the powerful feel of a solemn canto.
