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. Sassorosso is vinified in red with pumping over and délestage, followed by ageing for at least 12 months in medium-sized oak barrels and a small percentage in barriques. It is further refined in the bottle for at least 6 months. The character of the rock strongly influences the organoleptic characteristics of the wine, giving it a bright ruby red colour with great transparency tending towards maroon. The aroma is reminiscent of small red fruits such as blackberry, currants, cherry and raspberry, followed by floral notes of violet and rose. On the palate, the tannic texture is silky and dense with a savoury entry and long length. A great wine with high ageing potential, it is perfect as a pairing with first courses or with white meats and red meats and medium-aged cheeses. Read more Read less
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.
