Established in 1897, Nino Negri is the premier estate producing wine in the Valtellina DOCG in Italy's Lombardy region. The estate specialty is Sfursat ("strained" or "forced"); a wine made from grapes harvested by trained pickers and dried for 100 days in the cool, dry, alpine air. This winemaking style combines the opulence of Amarone with the elegant complexity of Barolo. The success of Nino Negri is due largely to the efforts of winemaker Casimiro Maule who has worked at the estate since\n \n \n 1971, his entire professional life.\n \n View More
Dark garnet red in color, this wine shows distinctive aromas of small fruits, raspberry preserves, roses, and violets, with a slight herbal note. In the mouth, full and lively tart fruit flavors, elegant tannins and a lingering aftertaste, with traces of prunes and toasty oak.
