Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Valtellina in Northern Italy and that expression of Nebbiolo. Nino Negre and Rainoldi, Triacca - they are an Alpine version of Nebbiolo where the wines are not as full bodied, but amazingly aromatic and really interesting. Those represent great values which I think still taste of the Piedmont region with a taste of Nebbiolo.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) The estate specialty is Sfursat ("strained" or "forced"); a wine made from grapes harvested by trained pickers and dried for 100 days in the cool, dry, alpine air. This winemaking style combines the opulence of Amarone with the elegant complexity of Barolo.
