Sfursat is derived from a natural drying of the grapes, favored by the chill and dry winds coming from the mountains. The wine is thus a unique Nebbiolo: rich and austere, with the typical mineral and fresh characters of the alpine wines.
Medium-ruby hue, accompanied by a concentrated, complex nose with notes of ripe berry fruit and spice (black pepper and cinnamon). At the palate, it’s dry, with ripe dark fruit notes, firm austere tannins. Full-bodied, persistent, long finish with notes of cloves and liquorice.
Roast red meats, game, mature cheeses (particularly the local Bitto).
The vineyards of the Valtellina DOC and DOCG zones, on the slopes of the Rhaetian Alps, along the right bank of the River Adda.
