    • "Mazér" Nebbiolo Valtellina Superiore DOCG 2016

      “Mazér” Nebbiolo Valtellina Superiore DOCG 2016

      This Nebbiolo comes from the vineyards of the Inferno (hell). The mountains owe their name to the steep slopes and the glowing summer temperatures there. Pure bouquet of red fruits, underpinned by a hint of tobacco, on the palate hints of mineral notes, in addition fine tannins, perfectly integrated in an appealing acid structure. A very authentic, classic and straightforward wine. SUPERIORE.DE

      “Vigna Sassorosso” Valtellina Superiore Grumello DOCG 2016

      The fragrance expresses all the complexity of Nebbiolo: dried flowers, fruit, liquorice and tobacco. The taste feels soft like velvet, in which alcohol, tannin and acid blend very harmoniously with each other and linger attractively. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Mid ruby with bright orange tinges. Minerally cherry and raspberry fruit nose with a saline note and hints of savoury oak. The palate is much better filled-out with fruit than the Fracia or the Mazér. Firm stalky tannins frame supple cherry fruit. Bright acidity on the finish and firm tannic grip having the last say." Jancis Robinson

      "Youthful rosewood and red fruit aromas. Ripe juicy red fruit flavours of some intensity. Still young but promises well." Decanter

      "A bright, mouthwatering red, this is medium- to full-bodied and tightly knit, marrying sculpted tannins to flavors of wild cherry coulis and raspberry fruit, with notes of dried herb and rose hip.

      “Castel Chiuro” Valtellina Superiore Riserva DOCG 2009

      120 years after the foundation of the winery, a new edition of a classic with special equipment (including a bound history booklet) is launched on the market. This high quality Nebbiolo comes from about 50 years old vines in the vineyards Sassorosso and Sassina, where the soils are very barren and stony. Clear ruby red, rich on the palate, powerful and complex with a wonderful elegance. The finesse and precision of the Nebbiolo grape are captivating from the first sip, and with increasing ventilation this rare drop reveals its complexity and structure. An anniversary wine, as it is written in the book! SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is a gorgeous and beautifully aged expression of Nebbiolo from the high mountains in the far north of Italy. The 2009 Valtellina Superiore Riserva Castel Chiuro absolutely blossoms in the glass with rose petal, violets, wild blueberry and more tangy forest fruit. The wine shows a long and pleasurable succession of small red berry aromas such as cassis and raspberry. Those polished and elegant primary tones are followed by light brushstrokes of smoke, licorice and tar. This wine is an absolute beauty." Robert Parker

    About the winemakers
    Nino Negri
    Lombardy
    Nino Negri

    In the Italian wine industry, the historic Nino Negri winery is a reference point for the whole of Valtellina. After the eponym had founded the company in 1897, the development of viticulture and oenology of Valtellina, whose wines the famous universal scholar Leonardo da Vinci already raved about, began. Nino's son Carluccio, however, gave the trend-setting impulse for the great success of the winery, which was established around 120 years ago, when he consistently renewed it, gradually renovated the vineyards and improved the cellar technology. Carluccio Negri also succeeded in conquering distant markets such as America and Australia. The modern and well-organised wine producer from the municipality of Chiuro in the province of Sondrio north of Lake Como succeeds in combining modernity with tradition in an exceptionally good way. Nino Negri has become a synonym for Veltliner top wines because of its very high reliability. Since 1986, the estate has been owned by Gruppo Italiano Vini and is a jewel in the large estate of the largest producer of quality wines in Italy.

    Under the expert supervision of the sensitive and very competent oenologist and wine director Casimiro Maule, a top technical team transforms the grape variety Chiavennasca - as Nebbiolo is called here - into excellent, multi-faceted noble wines with a particularly full aroma, whose quality is admired all over the world. A speciality of Nino Negri is the Sfursat di Valtellina. By the way, Maule was named Oenologist of the Year 2007 by the wine guideGambero Rosso. The winemaker had already understood very early how to masterfully exploit the enormous potential of this red grape variety in the old vaults of the renovated Palazzo Quadrio, dating from the 15th century.

    Casimiro Maule is constantly surprised by the opportunities offered by the Lombard soil. The company's own vineyards in the best locations, some of which are very steep and have terraces up to 120 centimetres wide with ancient dry-stone walls, are managed in an environmentally friendly manner. The Fracia vineyard was planted exclusively with Nebbiolo as early as 1922. The Grumello, Inferno and Sassella subzones are also planted with Pinot Nero and Chardonnay. Part of the grapes used for production come from strictly selected regional winegrowers.

    The vines of the Nino Negri vineyard, cultivated on the slopes of the mountains, find extremely favourable growing conditions in the microclimate zone, which is rich in contrasts, thanks to mostly sandy, mineral-rich soils with a lightly silt subsoil, excellent aeration and optimal exposure to the sun. The cultivation area is protected from the cold north winds by the Rhaetian Alps in winter. SUPERIORE.DE
