Located in the gently hills of Bergamo, the medieval Italian town halfway between Milan and the Alps in the Lombardy Lakes region, Locatelli Caffi has a family wine making tradition extended over the centuries in producing Valcalepio, primarily a red blended boutique wine.
The strong commitment to produce quality wines arises out of the region's beauty and richness, an undiscovered treasure of the North East of Italy to the most. In a territory characterized by an ideal combination of altitude, microclimate and soil, Cantina Locatelli Caffi testifies a rare dedication to winemaking where tradition and artisanal meet the contemporary techniques to satisfy even the most fine palates.
From vine to bottle, the making of exquisite wine depends on the experienced hands of a strong community. Good wine is about people, from every hand that helps create our Merlot/ Cabernet to every current and future friend who lifts a glass of our wine around the dinner table.
Eighty percent of the production is committed to the Valcalepio Rosso DOC (made from Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon grapes), the rest to the Valcalepio Bianco DOC (Pinot Bianco, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio grapes) and Valcalepio Moscato Passito, one of the few Italian "Passito" wines made from a aromatic red-grapes.
