Definitely Valtellina. Big producer in the area, so I had lower expectations... but the wine was lovely. Soft, expressive, ample acidity, sweet spices. Would buy again. SommSelect 2018.

1998....rich, savory, complex, and another decade to go.

Perfectly swell fruity drop of nebbiolo, strawberries and flowers and mountain air abound, well balanced and well priced. 2007 vintage.
