Valtellina Superiore Inferno Nino Negri 2019

The Valtellina Superiore Inferno by Nino Negri is a soft, intense and pleasantly tannic red wine from the smallest, steep and warm (hence the name) subzone of the denomination. Intense notes of cherry, wild berries, spices and mountain herbs gather on an intense body, round and enveloping, of excellent freshness and with a marked tannic texture

Glass
Medium open goblet
Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied rosé wines which don't require excessive oxygenation to open. The opening, slightly tighter than the body of the glass, favors the concentration of aromas towards the nose, enhancing the perception of aromas and limiting the dispersion
