Description

The Sforzato di Valtellina 5 Stars by Nino Negri is a red wine that is born in vineyards located in Valtellina, north of Lake Como in the province of Sondrio. It is a truly original and classy wine.

It is produced exclusively with Nebbiolo grapes, harvested only by hand during the month of October; the bunches are left to dry naturally for about 90 days, in order to better concentrate the sugars and reduce the water content. Then begins the vinification phase which involves a fermentation in steel with long contact with the skins at a controlled temperature of 25-27 ° C for 16 days. Its journey ends in French Allier barriques where it rests for 16 months and for a further 3 months in the bottle.

Tasting notes

It is characterized by an intense and deep garnet red color . The nose opens with a rich and very complex bouquet, with elegant hints of raspberry and violet, enriched by pleasant spicy notes of coffee. On the palate it is concentrated, pleasantly vigorous, with an extraordinary background of ripe blackberry and spices. The wine has a full-bodied, ample and persistent finish.

Perfect to accompany grilled red meats, it is ideal in combination with game and aged cheeses.
