Inferno is deep garnet in color with a well pronounced perfume of spice, dried flowers, plum and jam. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and dry with elegant notes of berry, herb, cedar-spice.

"The 2016 Valtellina Superiore Inferno is laced with pretty scents of dried red cherry, mint, sweet tobacco and dried herbs. Drink this gracious, ethereal red over the next few years."

"This medium- to full-bodied red has a round, burly quality to the tannins, which are well-meshed overall, providing a chewy frame for flavors of dried strawberry and cranberry fruit, violet and ground anise. Offers a fresh, mineral-laced finish. Drink now through 2026. 1,250 cases made, 300 cases imported."
