The Grumello: The Grumello: Vines in the subzone of Grumello cover an area of 78 hectares on the Rhaetian side of the valley, northeast of Sondrio. The name comes from Castello di Grumello, a 13th century castle that is one of the valley's historical landmarks. Built in 1326 by Corrado de Piro, it was destroyed by the invading Grigioni forces. Grumello is essentially a simple wine, left to mature for shorter periods than the wines in other subzones, though still having good potential for further maturing. A ruby red wine, Grumello is of medium in tensity, tending to garnet red. The bouquet is subtle and intense, with almond notes. Dry and velvety on the palate, the wine has a rich fragrance and is slightly tannic, sapid and harmonic.
TRADITION AND INNOVATION
The Triacca Winery has been an independent family-run company for four generations, founded in 1897. Its history is made up of men and women who work with passion to guarantee the quality of wines branded 'Triacca'.
THE MANUFACTURER'S HISTORY
Toward the end of the 19th century, Domenico Triacca traded in wine between Valtellina and Valposchiavo (Grigioni, Switzerland), but he was an ambitious man and wanted to produce his own noble nectar independently, from his own grapes. In 1897, he bought 2000 square metres of vine-covered terrain in the Valgella area in Valtellina, Lombardy. This was the pivotal moment when what would become one of the most important wineries in Valtellina was created. Sadly, Domenico Triacca died in 1910 in an accident while transporting wine along Lake Poschiavo. The reins of this infant enterprise were passed to his widow, Orsola, and subsequently to the most diligent of his five children, Eugenio: farsighted, scrupulous, determined and highly successful.
