    "Delicate garnet color; aromas of dried red cherry, orange peel and rose petals. Excellent depth of fruit, lovely balance. Supple tannins, good acidity and notable persistence. Enjoy over the next 5-7 years - particularly good with lighter game."

    The 2013 Valtellina Superiore Inferno offers a good bit of aromatic and flavor complexity to match its lifted, mid-weight personality. Scents of sweet tobacco, anise and dried herbs are laced together in this pretty Valtellina red.

    This elegant, light- to medium-bodied red weaves together a subtle mesh of smoke, grilled herb, dried fig and cherry fruit. Fresh, with light tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2020.

    Woodland berry, wild rose and a whiff of crushed stone aromas come together on this luminous red. The vibrant silky palate offers tart red cherry, Alpine herb and a hint of white pepper alongside bright acidity and polished tannins.
