Valtellina Superiore (Lombardy) This wine shows a brilliant brick red color and nuances of brick red, transparent. The nose reveals intense, clean, pleasing, refined and elegant aromas that start with hints of strawberry, cherry and raspberry followed by aromas of plum, dried violet, dried rose, cyclamen, vanilla, tobacco, leather, licorice, cocoa, mace and menthol. The mouth has excellent correspondence to the nose, a tannic attack and pleasing crispness, however balanced by alcohol, full body, intense flavors, pleasing roundness. The finish is very persistent with long flavors of strawberry, cherry and raspberry. A well made wine. Valtellina Superiore Sassella Riserva Rocce Rosse ages for more than 4 years in cask.
