Vigna Fracia Valtellina Superiore DOCG Valgella 2019

Nino Negri

Terrior: The schist rock is the result of the transformation of rocks at great depths during the formation of the Alps The schist in the vineyard is blue and very prone to flaking. The wide terracing has allowed the deposit of soil made up mainly of sand, gravel and loam


Vinification: The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed. Rack and return as per the classic red winemaking process with fermentation at between 25 and 28°C. After
malolactic fermentation, the wine is left for at least 12 months in medium sized oak barrels and a small amount in barriques. The wine ages for a further 18 months in the bottle

Additional Information

The cold micro climate results in a longer cycle of vegetative growth for the Nebbiolo seen in its intense ruby color with slight garnet highlights complex aromas with hints
of dog rose and violet evolving into spicy notes such as rosemary and lavender. Dense, rich and well structured tannins on the palate Well balanced fresh acidity leads to a long, flavoursome finish. Another year of bottle ageing lends ideal balance to the natural robustness of the wine
