Balgera

Riserva Grumello Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2004

Finicky wine. Needs some air to get going, but the tannins have largely resolved, so drinks a bit delicate. That said, the palate is beautifully finessed red berries with enough fresh acid intact to give it a lift. The nose is classic Nebbiolo flowers and light red fruit. Very pretty. Ready to enjoy right now. — 5 days ago

Inferno Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2017

Fresh, floral and aetheric with dried berries, cherry juice and violets plus a whiff of moist undergrowth and cedar wood. On the palate this marries lightness of the fresh, fragile fruit with singing acidity and the unmistakeable tannic grip of Nebbiolo. Fresh, pure, juicy and sooo drinkable this also has great precision & depth. A truly beautiful wine. — 19 days ago

Rainoldi

Riserva Sassella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo

Black Truffle ravioli, heirloom tomatoes, and farm fresh kale went perfectly with this properly aged Valtellina Nebbiolo. It has truffle and aged salumi with baked plum and smoky cherry bursting aromatically alongside violet and briny plum reduction. A corned beef and grilled pork along with ground steak skimming. Amazing. Blood orange dried bing and cran, dried violet, cedar and light tobacco, clove, and lightest graphite. This is elegant as a samurai sword with the blacksmith residue to prove it, Rose petal, and a hemp resin moment tamed by cinnamon. Incredible on all levels. #rainoldi #rainoldivaltellina #valtellina #valtellinasuperiore #sassellareserva #nebbiolo #chiavennasca — 14 days ago

La Spia

MR72 Valtellina Superiore Sassella Nebbiolo 2010

Pale brown in color is this 10-year-old wine from Valtellina, looks unfiltered; beeswax on the nose along with earthy dusty notes with faint nebbiolo flowers and tar in the background; high acids. mouthfilling balanced with chocolate, coffee, dark small berries; long nice finish.

Interesting wine from La Spia (i.e. the Spy) of the Rigamonti family in the far-northern Valtellina region with breath-taking views.

Stella Retica Riserva Sassella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2012

Wet autumn leaves, camphor, Amaro, root beer, licorice, menthol, truffle, dried flowers, tar. The non-fruits alone are incredibly complex. Muddled cherry and red plum. So many woodsy notes on all fronts. The VA was right at my limit, a touch pushy and beginning to muddle character especially with more aeration. — 23 days ago

5 Stelle Sfursat di Valtellina 2002

Delicious with steak. Tastes of blood and earth. A lovely, intense wine. My bottle was on its way to excessive oxidation, but was still good. It will not survive another year of aging. — 23 days ago

Cantina Menegola

Rupestre Valtellina Sassella 2013

Lättare nebbi med lite mjukare och lätt fatad stil. Rosor, tjära och bärsaft. Avslutar torrt med kanske inte riktigt den vanliga syran. — a month ago

Featherweight Nebbiolo. Elegant and refined, perhaps lacking just a bit of acidity.
