THAT SPEAKS OF A Family and its History
Erected in the 16th century, the ancient Dominican monastery was a reference point for pilgrims hosted by monks who tended to the fields and vines that characterised this land.
Over the years the complex became the residence of the noble De Gatti family, hence its name today, before becoming the property of the noble Mascioni family.
In 1969 the Estate and its lands became the property of the Triacca family.
What has happened since? We have never stopped seeing our Estate as an infinite source of excellence, nestled in the heart of Valtellina.
In addition to innovating, cultivating and enhancing all the opportunities the land has to offer us, in 2008 we renovated the monastery, restoring it to its former glory, without ever losing sight of or undermining its style, history and authenticity.
Today, with its vineyards and grapes, La Gatta is a cornerstone in the history and prestige of Triacca Family wine production.
THAT REVEALS The Art of Wine and Innovation
Accompanying every moment, from vine to production, working with passion and looking ahead to increasingly improve quality, brining out the ultimate expression, the pure essence and flavour of Valtellina wines.
When La Gatta became ours, the first step was to achieve compliance with certified quality.
This is why we have invested in innovation, without undermining the art of grape harvesting and wine production.
This has culminated in the rigorous selection of Nebbiolo clones, the variety that reigns supreme on the Estate, and the revolutionary technique of cultivating on horizontal terraces, also referred to as contour farming, and the sustainable mechanisation of harvesting and production processes.
With passion we have built a business that brings added value to the sector in which it operates.
WHEREGenuine Grapes are cultivated and processed with Passion
A land that nurtures a genuine and authentic grape harvest, which is then processed with passion.
The majority of the Estate’s vines are red: 90% of total surface area is occupied by the characteristic Nebbiolo variety.
6% is occupied by Pignola, 3% by Sauvignon Blanc and 1% by Pink Muscat.
At 300 to 500 metres above sea level, our vineyards fully exploit the characteristics of the soil, benefiting from perfect exposure and balanced protection.
All this thanks to the structuring of horizontal terraces and the new farming system, which involves the use of three metre high leaf walls with a 15° inclination, to maximise the potential of light and store heat.
ABOUT PRODUCTIONWines of character
Our vineyard in Valtellina, with over 40 of vine fields, 13 ha of which La Gatta, 10 ha Valgella, 9 ha Sassella, and 8 ha Tirano, produces 3,000 hl of wine per year.
