Red Wine Red Wine Score:

Valtellina Superiore (Lombardy) The wine shows a brilliant ruby red color and nuances of garnet red, moderate transparency. The nose denotes intense and clean aromas, mainly of violet followed by aromas of black cherry, strawberry jam, raspberry, licorice, blueberry and hints of black pepper. The mouth reveals a good correspondence to the nose and a slightly alcoholic attack however well balanced by tannins. The finish is persistent with pleasing flavors of violet, black cherry and strawberry jam. A well made wine produced with Nebbiolo grapes that are left on the vine to dry for 25-30 days and is aged in new barrique for 12 months and 8 months in bottle.
