Produced only in the best years, Nino Negri’s flagship wine 5 Stelle Sfursat di Valtellina is made from the regions finest selections of Chiavennasca (Nebbiolo).
Wine EnthusiastFull-bodied and velvety, this opens with alluring aromas of baking spice, mature plum, violet, Alpine herb and a balsamic note. The concentrated palate is smooth and robust, but it also boasts a weightless quality, delivering dried black cherry, nutmeg, cinnamon, anise, dried date and pipe tobacco alongside firm polished tannins and fresh acidity. A mineral note closes the finish. This is the best Sfursat 5 Stelle I've tried so far. Drink 2018-2028.
Wine SpectatorBeautifully aromatic, this red offers notes of kirsch, Christmas spice and orange peel that carry from the nose to the palate, where they are underscored by tarry mineral, dried fig and herb accents and layered with sculpted tannins. Rich and expressive, set in an elegant, medium-bodied frame. Drink now through 2027
