Sforzato di Valtellina 5 Stelle Sfursat 2016
A skein of spice unwinds through this rich, full-bodied red, which displays a mouthwatering range of raspberry coulis and fig cake flavors, a streak of graphite-laced mineral and accents of Earl Grey tea and rose hip, defined by sculpted tannins. A lovely, harmonious wine, marrying subtle power and focus to elegance. Drink now through 2031. 2,000 cases made, 100 cases imported.
Casa Vinicola Nino Negri, founded in 1897, represents the most important wine business in Valtellina. Cultivated on the slopes of the mountains, the vines have found the ideal conditions for growth, thanks to the splendid exposure to the sun over the whole span of the day and to soil rich in minerals. The winery is organized in the most up-to-date manner over 30 hectares of its own propriety in the Valtellina, Lombardy.
