Stella Retica Riserva Sassella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2017

Nose: so floral. Violets. Red Roses. Ntense. Fantastic!

Palate: elegantly savory. Mid season cherries. Lovely hint of licorice.

Nettare Rosso Di Valtellina Nebbiolo

Such a nice wine. Maybe I was a little too excited about it last year when I gave it a 9.7. But my comments still stand. What kind of a tool would rate this 8.8?? ( see below for the exciting answer). — 3 months ago

Riserva Vigna Regina Sassella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2017

At Pesach so glassware was hit and miss. Lots of miss.
This is consistently a marvel of high altitude, no toast(steamed)barrel, various wood Nebbiolo.
After 10-15 mins open the nose is like the most intense, ethereal fraises de bois. Intermingled with fine rocks and wood. Bright!
On the palate, it’s redolent of high altitude tiny berries, transparent and lively, gripping your lower front gums with a hint of licorice.
The only issue may be finding the generosity to share it.

Valgella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2016

Still good freshness. Elegant cherry fruit. Missing a bit of the vibrancy it had in its youth but still lovely.

As this opens you get lovely pink roses on the nose. This wine still has it. It just needs some time.
