Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Nino Negri’s very famous flagship wine is made from a selection of the best grapes and only in the best years: 100% Nebbiolo (Chiavennasca) grapes, picked by hand in the most acclaimed parcels of Valtellina Superiore. After natural drying for 3 months they are vinified on their skins, with long maceration. Ageing for 18 months in new French oak barriques only is followed by further ageing in the bottle for another 6 months.
