“Tell the territory through your own knowhow”: it’s from sharing this idea born Alperubra – innovative line of products for the table.With the project Alperubra, landscapes of Valtellina become narrative forms.Through the digitalization of their alpine structures morphology, first mapped through the Google data, then reworked by tecniques of slicing and three-dimensional moderation, are trasformed into instrumental items to the “mise en place”. Wood, exclusively Oak and Chestnut of ancient casks of wine found in the valley, takes on a new life, continuing the tale around the wine that has hosted. From container for its maturation, to a tool at the service of food and wine experience. Alperubra brings together the story, sedimented in the wood grain, with contemporary digital tachnologies, triggering a strong dialectic between the territory, the raw material and the history of wine as a product able to open his own storytelling and digital manufactoring.

SUGGESTIONS OF VALTELLINA
Nature and landscapes, tastes and traditions.
During sunset, when sky is clear and free from clouds, observing yhe highest peaks, you will witness such a unique showing: rocky and whitish face turned red. From this natural emotion born the idea of reusing a wood, that of ancientwine casks, which with its color can revive the magic of valleys and the charm of peaks.
Chestnut and Oak are the protagonist of Alberubra
The origin of the wood cask dates back to Celts, however it was only during the nineteenth century that people began to give wood, especially oak, a different function: they realized that the wine stored in the wood had different characteristics than he one held in contact with the glass and varied dependingon the size of the cask where it was hosted. Regions of origin, along with other factors, determine some technological features of the wood like texture or grain. The process of wood selection and creation of casks is so crucial: before being used takes from 2 to 3 years of seasoning.
