Product Description

NINO NEGRI 'VIGNETO FRACIA' VALTELLINA SUPERIORE DOCG 2011

Terroir
The Nino Negri Vigneto Fracia is produced from the estate vineyard of the same name. This 16 acre steep, terraced vineyard sits high on the south facing hillside in the commune of Chiuro within the Valgella subzone. Special clones and vinestocks have been selected and densely planted at over 12,000 plants per acre. Soils are poor consisting primarily of sand and granite gravel.

Vinification
The Vigneto Fracia ripens later than the rest of the region with harvest typically conducted in mid to late October. Selection is strict in the vineyard and grapes are sorted again after arrival at the winery. The must is macerated for 8 days and then aged for 16-20 months in small French oak casks.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS EDIT
Bright garnet with brick red highlights in the glass; concentrated aromas of dried flowers, violet and wild rose to the fore, spices and hints of blackberry jam. Dry, warm, full- flavored palate with an elegant finish of ripe plum and lingering bitter almond.
