Fiamme Antiche Inferno Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2017

9.5

Another 2017 Arpepe winner. Stunning nose. Classic Nebbiolo. Stunning. Aromas of rose petals, tar, some earth, but dried earth, leather and just so deep and so good. Classic. Like MGM classic. Wow. Palate is a dream. Succulent and supple with just insane juiciness and balance. Pure. All red fruit and just perfect balance and sweetness. Sappy and long. And my goodness is this elegant. Maybe the most elegant non riserva I’ve had from ar pe pe. Genius wine. Utter beauty. — 4 days ago

Sfursat Valtellina Nebbiolo 2017

Old world colour and age meet youthful fruity flavors and a nose of amarone-inspired sun-dried berries and herbal undertones. Dried herbs on a velvety palate of fruit-driven delights. A lush mouthful of cherry and dried pomegranate marry crushed oregano. Sips lengthy and lovely with balanced bright acidity. Cheers for a memorable toast on a breezy summer’s eve. — 12 days ago

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. — 2 years ago

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

This is as close as I get to Amarone. I love Sfursat. Nose is raisin inflected mid season cherries. Wet earth, tar and roses. Not a trace of heat at 16% either. Really beautiful nose. Palate is nimble and elegant and super pure. Great finely woven tannins and sapid mid season cherry fruit. Some heat on the palate is to be expected. Let’s see how air deals with this. Lovely wine. — 17 days ago

It’s a wine that you have with rich food. The alcohol is integrated.

Riserva Vigna Regina Sassella Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo

What a delightful find with recommendation from the Sommelier at Marea in NYC. I couldn't locate the Barolo that would work and he pointed me here. Great spot, by the way — 15 days ago

Ronco del Picchio Sforzato di Valtellina Nebbiolo 2016

If the Alta Langhe and Valpolicella had a baby. It’s name would be Sforzato! Desiccated Nebbiolo made into a spicy and beautiful experiment. — 10 months ago
