One of Valtellina's historic wineries, Fratelli Bettini is a gem of a winery nestled in the heart of Lombardy, in the Valgella area and better known in its own territory than in other regions. Most of the production takes place using the classic method, using carefully selected native grape varieties, but applying modern and innovative techniques. The vinification and maturation processes are conducted with great care, and take place in the cellars in oak barrels and barriques, some of which are French. All the processes contribute to the absolute quality and characterisation of the taste and aromas of the wines produced, which are acidic to just the right degree, with sugary and alcoholic nuances. In the province of Sondrio, near Teglio, the estate cultivates around 15 hectares of family-owned land. In an area historically suited to viticulture, there are terraced vineyards supported by stone walls. It is impossible not to be impressed by the area's fine mountain Nebbiolo. However, Bettini is also known for its Lombardy sparkling wines such as Brut, Rosé and Bianco Brut, most of which are produced in the traditional way. Finally, a visit to the estate cannot be considered complete without a stop at the nearby Azienda Agricola, immersed in nature and ready to offer a tasting in bucolic surroundings. Name and address of producer/distributor: Bettini - Via Nazionale, 68 23036 S. Giacomo di Teglio (SO). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
