TASTING NOTES

The history of the Nino Negri winery goes back a long way and is inextricably linked to the oenological evolution of Valtellina. It all began in 1897, when Nino Negri decided to set up a wine business in Chiuro in the province of Sondrio. Growth accelerated in the decades to come; in the post-war period it was one of the most promising wineries in the area. After several changes of ownership, today it has 33 hectares of land in the most prestigious areas including Inferno, Grumello, and Fracia, at the heart of Valgella, with an average annual production of 800,000 bottles. The area's queen grape is a local variant of Nebbiolo called Chiavennasca. Sforzato di Valtellina 5 Stelle is a Lombardy red wine made exclusively from Chiavennasca grapes. It is one of the winery’s most prestigious products. Following a late harvest, the grapes are first dried for at least 90 days. This is followed by fermentation and finally passage in barriques, for 16 months, before being allowed to rest for another six months in the bottle. An intense ruby red in colour, this wine has notes of dry flowers and black fruit jam on the nose with a finish of vanilla, cocoa, and coffee. It is intense on the palate, a warm and full-bodied wine with an elegant finish of spices and plums. This wine is perfect for big occasions and for pairing with braised red meats or game.

THE WINERY

Nino Negri

Of all the wine cellars in Lombardy, perhaps Nino Negri's is one of those that has succeeded best in combining traditional techniques with the most complex and avant-garde innovations. Between French and American oak barriques, the oldest traditions of the Valtellina region, where the winery and its vineyards have been in operation for more than a century, still find their place. After careful renovation work aimed at striking a balance between old and new, the company has created a production of high-quality grappas and Lombardy wines with a strong character and rich history. Its territory lies on the slopes of the Valtellina mountains, in an area sheltered from the north wind and exposed to the sun. The area's microclimate is exploited to the full during cultivation, in order to be able to count on excellent grapes that give the final product a class and finesse that is typical of Lombardy. Name and address of producer/distributor: Nino Negri - Via Ghibellini, 3, 23030 Chiuro (SO). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
