Valtellina Superiore Maroggia DOCG is produced in the Berbenno comune in the Valtellina valley. The name, Maroggia, is connected to Prince Benigno De’ Medici, who, in the mid-1500s, enjoyed great hospitality in the area and was especially excited about the local wine, which he called "dulce et firmum", sweet and full-bodied.

As with all the Valtellina Superiore wines, this one goes well with spicy dishes from the local kitchen, especially meat and mature cheese.
