The home of Valtellina excellence. Single-handedly responsible for elevating Valtellina to the world stage, Nino Negri is one of Italy’s most decorated estates, championing the Chiavennasca clone of Nebbiolo and representing the height of Sfursat production.

The grapes undergo scrupulous sorting both in the vineyard prior to harvest and upon arrival at the winery after which they are placed in small crates to slowly dry through the autumn and early winter for a period of 100 days. The dried grapes are then crushed and macerated for 12 days followed by a short resting period in stainless steel. The wines are aged in French oak casks for 20-24 months before bottling.

Bottle Size: 750ml

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Notes

    With a garnet-brick color; the wine shows complex aromas of cloves, cinnamon and pepper with plum jam, raisins and tar notes.
  • Palate

    On the palate, the wine has a dry, warm, full-bodied character, austere from its prominent acidity yet harmonious, with an elegant finish, and roasted hazelnut and licorice traces.

“The Nino Negri Sfursat is a limited production of Valtellina’s best grapes that are naturally dried using traditional methods.”


Origins

Sourced from some of the finest vineyards in the appellation including Inferno, Grumello and Fracia sitting on the steep slopes of the Retiche Alps along the bank of the Adda river. Vineyards have a due-south exposure and sit in loose, gravelly soil at 900-1200 feet in elevation.
