      “Vigneto Fracia” Valtellina Superiore DOCG 2016

      Lively garnet red is the Fracia - the second top plant of the house Negri. Its fragrance is intense and animating, with aromas of plums and hints of violets, rose petals and spices. On the palate it is expressive and of fantastic density, warm and spicy with a long and elegant finish. A wine of great overall harmony and with a pronounced terroir character. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 Valtellina Superiore Vigneto Fracia is a pretty, mid-weight wine with tons of character. Dried cherry, game, licorice, incense and sweet floral notes give the 2016 striking layers of nuance. Light on its feet and gracious in feel, the 2016 is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next few years. The 2016 is all class." Vinous

      Outstanding terroir, terrific quality of the grapes and masterly cellar technology made it one of the most highly endowed wines! Bewitching aromas of candied cherry fruit with notes of spices and tobacco. On the palate dense, very concentrated with fabulous fruit sweetness, subtle acidity and fresh tannins. A dream of finesse and elegance, which echoes with long and incredibly deep flavours. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lustrous ruby with orange tinges. Deep nose of cherry, cardamom pod and liquorice powder. Plush but not heavy fruit on the palate with dried cherry and cocoa-powder notes and minty dark-chocolate notes. Gripping tannins and succulent acidity and plenty of dense fruit without ever getting heavy. Clearly modernist, but most of all hedonistic. Much more interesting than most Amarones." Jancis Robinson

      "A skein of spice unwinds through this rich, full-bodied red, which displays a mouthwatering range of raspberry coulis and fig cake flavors, a streak of graphite-laced mineral and accents of Earl Grey tea and rose hip, defined by sculpted tannins. A lovely, harmonious wine, marrying subtle power and focus to elegance." Wine Spectator

      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
