The mouth has good correspondence to the nose, a tannic attack and pleasing crispness, however balanced by alcohol, full body, intense flavors, pleasing roundness. The finish is persistent with flavors of cherry, plum and raspberry. A well made wine. Valtellina Superiore Riserva La Gatta ages for 30 months in cask followed by 8 months of aging in bottle.
