DESCRIPTION:

Only Nebbiolo grapes, harvested on the south facing slopes of Valtellina in Northern Italy. Deep ruby in colour, it has a complex and deep nose, beginning with cherries and strawberries, leading to a beautiful range of spices such as vanilla, anise and leather. The palate is intense, warm and deep. Balanced with fruity and mineral notes, with a round tannin for a long lasting finish.
