The Sassella area includes just under 120 hectares of terraced vineyards between the municipalities of Castione Andevenno and Sondrio. The name Sassella refers to the importance of the rocky outcrops particularly rich in iron on which a small layer of earth rests. The altitude of the vineyards ranges from 300 m above sea level in correspondence with the homonymous sanctuary up to 630 m above sea level in those in the Piatta hamlet. The wines of this area are recognized for their particular elegance and aptitude for aging. The vineyards are located in the hamlet of Grigioni (Castione), in correspondence with the sanctuary of Sassella and in the locality of Triasso (municipality of Sondrio).
The vinification takes place at the end of a slow maceration at a controlled temperature with cyclical intervals of pumping over and punching down; afterwards, the wine is placed in steel tanks so that the malolactic fermentation takes place by spring.
