Shop Tenuta Scersce

Cristina Scarpellini, wineproducer in Valtellina since 2008, is the soul of Tenuta Scerscé. Right from the beginning she has stepped into the Valtellina context with patience and respect, taking care of this fascinating yet fragile territory. In Milan she graduated in law after writing a research thesis at the University of Paris Sorbonne, Panthéon Assas II, which has held her in Paris for about two years. After returning to Italy, Cristina decided to pursue a legal career. Thanks to a collaboration in Milan, a few years later she began a career that allowed her to specialize in enterprise internationalization. This is how she crossed the path with Valtellina.

Passionate about Nebbiolo and forward-looking in her corporate vision, she took on the challenge at all levels. She began a search path based on a deep knowledge of the territory and daily care for her vineyards, which in this Alpine area require a great deal of effort due to its steep slopes. A vertical land that repays the effor only to those who have spirit of sacrifice and work with heart and passion.

We are strongly morivated to create wines that are a direct expression of their territory and that can convey our mindset and personality along with our tenacious search for quality. Over the years, our approach in the vineyard has become more and more thorough, first of all by analyzing the soil in each vineyard so as to acknowledge its characteristics and improve its performance. The new cellar is designed according to sustainable and innovative parameters, a new space that allows to keep studying and experimenting with new types of tank and by lenghtening the wine aging in the bottle.

A link between past and present, a union between bequeathed manual skills and contemporary tools, in full respect of tradition. People are a central part of this concept and contribute to shaping its character and identity. The company logo is the traditional two-pronged hoe which originates from farming culture and which is used when working on the ground around the shoot and roots of the vines.
