This wine is flawed. Amazed that this was ever bottled

Valtellina Superiore DOCG 2009, Inferno, 13.5%. Nebbiolo grapes, fermented in steel, resulting in an unexpected bright color. Very average, no defects at all, but nothing to remember. 78/100

Quite restrained with a mineral nose: blood & iron, not unlike a good Dao. Some earthy tones in the background, and a bit of flint. On the palate quite light with very high acidity and quite light tannins. Very mineral with the cherries well hidden. Not bad, but definitely a food wine.
Edit: a touch of Brett comes out towards he end after some time in the glass.

Nice approachable light style, delicate tannins do well with a variety of food, including ribeye
