Tenuta Scerscé – Rising to Challenges in Valtellina
Cristina Scarpellini likes a challenge. She came to Valtellina, an outsider, a lawyer from Milan, and knew she wouldn’t leave. This valley had her under its spell.
Starting with a 1-hectare vineyard, she created her winery Tenuta Scerscé, the name honoring the hard work and labor that make the grapes of this region so precious. Scerscé is the name of the 2-pronged pitchforks used to tend these vineyards.
It would not be easy. Valtellina is filled with challenges. But just taste her wines, and you will know that she has risen to each of those challenges.
