White wine grapes are found only rarely in the Valtellina. La Contea is a «Federweisser», made from red grapes with a small proportion of white wine added. The wine has a wonderfully concentrated bouquet and fresh, flowery aromas. Plenty of fruit on the palate, good body and a pleasantly dry finish.
«Federweisser» is a white wine or pale rosé made from red wine grapes. The must is separated as quickly as possible from the skins after light pressing, so that the resulting wine has little or no colour. Champagne is also made principally from red wine grapes (Pinot Noir). Only Blanc de Blancs is made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes.
