Valtellina Superiore 'Mazer' Nino Negri 2019

The "Mazèr" is a Valtellina Superiore that owes its name to the term Valtellina which means good, beautiful and generous. In fact it is elegant, decisive and harmonious, with sapidity and freshness, wrapped in an intense and layered bouquet dominated by ripe red fruit and jam, surrounded by sweet spices, rhubarb, chocolate and tobacco. Great longevity red!
