Rosso di Valtellina is the Nebbiolo which best embodies the fresh and agreeable nature of alpine wines.Using Nino Negri’s century-old experience only the vineyards able to ripen grapes producing soft tannins but not too high potential alcohol were selected. The Nebbiolo grapes chosen for the wine are reasonably large but, most importantly, thick-skinned and robust and thus suitable for whole-berry fermentation.
Ruby red hue; intense, fruity and spirited nose notwithstanding delicate notes of wild berries, cherries and sweet spice, accompanied by subtle hints of violets; smooth on the palate with pleasant-tasting tannins. An immediately fruity finish but then with flavour and minerality persisting.
Appetizers, first courses and delicate-flavoured meats.
Vineyards in the Valtellina DOC zone, in the foothills of the Valtellina Alps.
