A part of Nino Negri since 1897, this vineyard is situated at the convergence of alpine valleys with abundant glaciers and where cold breezes mean lower than average temperatures.The natural vegetation is Mediterranean with plants such as lavender and rosemary, a strange contrast to the low temperatures. The resulting wine is flavoursome and floral with a characteristically spicy aroma. After malolactic fermentation the wine ages for at least 12 months in oak barrels medium capacity and a small percentage in barrique. Bottling follows and a further refinement of at least 18 months

Grape: Nebbiolo (Chiavennasca)

Appellation: Valgella Valtellina Superiore DOCG

Tasting: The cold micro-climate results in a longer cycle of vegetative growth for the Nebbiolo seen in its intense ruby colour with slight garnet highlights; complex aromas with hints of dog rose and violet evolving into spicy notes such as rosemary and lavender. Dense, rich and well-structured tannins on the palate. Well-balanced fresh acidity leads to a long, flavoursome finish. Another year of bottle ageing lends ideal balance to the natural robustness of the wine

Alc: 13.5%
