Aldo Rainoldi is a small winery in Northern Italy’s Valtellina wine Region.
Aldo is a name that is important in the Rainoldi family. In the 1920s, Aldo Rainoldi was a wine merchant in Valtellina. Fast forward a generation or two, and his grandson, also Aldo, completes a degree in Oenology and Viticulture and returns in the late 1990s.
He and his wife, Michela, now run this family winery based near Chiuro.
With 11 hectares planted across Grumello, Sassella, and Inferno, they produce 185,000 bottles annually.
Michela was behind the table, greeting and pouring. She shared with us 3 of their wines, all versions of their Nebbiolo, the specialty of this region.
