LE TENSE Sassella Valtellina Superiore DOCG

During the rule of the Swiss Three Grey Leagues (1512 1797) and particularly under the terms stressed by the Statutes of Grosotto (SO) in 1544, the finest vineyards were referred to as tense, i.e.“protected” by the guardians of the vines, the arbostrari. This is the origin of the name “Le Tense”, which is representative of the finest vineyards of the Sassella subzone.
