The Pietro Nera Sforzato di Valtellina DOCG masterfully balances power and elegance. The fruit shows dried characters, as expected from the Appassimento process, with a focus on red fruit like cherries and cranberries. Dried rose aromas also reflect a marker of the Nebbiolo grape, and earthy spices round out the flavor characters. A dry, full bodied wine at 15% alcohol, this is a special wine as the season grows colder.
The wine is very age worthy, with the firm tannin and high acidity so characteristic of Nebbiolo combined with a fuller body. It is an excellent accompaniment to game, roasted meat, and mature and aged cheeseHave you had a Sforzato di Valtellina DOCG
