Fiori di Sparta
It is the noble wine of Valtellina. Carefully selected Nebbiolo grapes are left drying in the autumn-winter breeze for 100 -120 days in a “fruttaio”, a dry area with good air circulation.
Then there is a slight pressing of the grapes followed by a slow and long fermentation in contact with the skins to enhance body, flavour and endurance. After that the wine stays for more than 2 years in oak barrel and ages in the bottle for 12 months further.
In a glass
Etheric, warm and enveloping (alcohol 15- 15,5 % vol.). The colour is bright garnet. Rich in aromas with notes of ripe blackberry, cherry in alcohol and a hint of dried plum.Exceptional mellowness, dry, structured, with character, there is a hint of toasted and chocolate to the taste. Aristocratic wine of great value. A perfect match with roasts and noble game meats or by itself in pleasant tasting.
