Valtellina Superiore Sassella Nino Negri 2019

The Sassella by Nino Negri is an intense and structured Valtellina Superiore, the result of a "heroic" viticulture that takes place on the steep terraces in the oldest area of the appellation. The aromas of wild berries, floral accents, toasted notes and slight fragrances of aromatic herbs make up a very typical and territorial bouquet. On the palate it gives a complex and pleasantly fresh taste, wrapped in a strong tannic texture

Glass
Medium open goblet
Medium open goblet

Perfect for young and medium bodied red 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
