2019 Tenuta Scersce 'Nettare' Rosso di Valtellina

Northern Italy | Nebbiolo
"Wet leaves, cranberries, dried red cherries and savory, earthy notes on the nose. A linear nebbiolo with some white pepper and grilled herbs on the palate."
91 Points, James Suckling

 

"Rosso di Valtellina DOC is a good introduction to the wines of the Valtellina, the northernmost sub-zone in the Lombardy region. The vineyards are set against the backdrop of the Rhaetian Alps, at altitudes of up to 700 m.a.s.l. Tenuta Scerscé "Nettare" Rosso di Valtellina is 100% Nebbiolo, locally known as Chiavennasca. A little lighter and less tannic than its counterpart in Piemonte, "Nettare" is fermented and aged in stainless steel and cement tanks. As the first wine produced after the vintage, it is a "nectar" dedicated to everyone and all occasions."
