2020 Quadrio Valtellina Superiore DOCG750ML
The Nino Negri Valtellina Superiore Quadrio is a blend of 90% Nebbiolo and 10% Merlot and represents a selection of some of the estate's best fruit. The wine is lithe and delicate with softly delivered tones of wild berry, rose hip, spice and campfire ash. The wine slides over the palate with a silky, mid-weight texture and calls out for an outdoor seating of warm rosemary focaccia with speck and rucola.
Sustainable. With a dark garnet-red color, the wine shows distinctive, fine aromas of small fruits, raspberry preserves, roses and violets, with an herbal note. In the mouth, the wine has full, lively tart fruit flavors, elegant tannins and a lingering aftertaste, with traces of prunes and toasty oak. Rated 91 Points Lisa's Staff.
