Fragrance Initially reminiscent of exotic fruits, bananas mixed with vanilla, and then aromatic notes of toasted dried fruit and acacia honey with slight balsamic hints that clearly appear.
Color Pale yellow with golden reflections, which turn slightly rosy after a few years. Lively and shining.
Flavor Dry, very smooth, elegant and discreet. The aromatic bouquet is confirmed in the taste, and the light toasted notes which characterise the wine are accentuated.
Pairing The greatest qualities of this wine are its refinement and elegance. Therefore it goes particularly well with foods with a distinctive, strong or slightly bitter taste, such as: smoked and dressed meat products (salami, etc.), liver, and also full fat cheeses with a strong flavour, perfect even with sea and lake fish.

Terrazze Retiche di Sondrio IGT 2017 "Torre Della Sirena" - Conti Sertoli Salis

  • €25.86
  • Ex Tax: €21.20

Obtained from a blend of Nebbio-lo-Chiavennasca grapes and locally cultivated grapes ( Chardonnay and Sauvignon) 

They are picked separately, before the remain-ing harvest. This wine is not recognized as D.O.C. only because the white vinification of these Valtellina grapes is not foreseen by the production regulations. 



Conti Sertoli Salis has been one of the most important and prestigious establishments in Valtellina since it was founded in 1989. The company is based in Tirano, where both the production facility and the original XVII century refining cellars, located inside Palazzo Salis (the historic headquarters of the winery), are situated. The Palazzo's seventeenth century cellars, carved into the rock, are used for longer term ageing in barrels and barriques, and for subsequent refining in bottles. The name Conti Sertoli Salis has been associated with wine production for over 400 years: in the mid 1600s the aristocratic family supplied fine Valtellina wines to the court of the Hapsburg Emperor and to noble Grison families in Valtellina.

The Salis Brothers were among the first wine makers to bottle their wine in the entire Kingdom of Italy, according to ancient shipping documents and labels. Bottles dating back 1881 and 1890 were found in the family cellars, kept safe during the many changes of residence. 

Among the several honours received, the most important refers to “Tirano bottle wine of 1869”. Back then, only some makers of Barolo and Marsala would bottle their wines.
