Inferno Valtellina Superiore DOCG 2009

Nino Negri

Terroir: The Nino Negri Inferno is sourced from the best crus of the Inferno subzones of Calvario, Sopragironi, Sottogironi and Ca Rossa. Grapes are densely cultivated high on the terraced hillside in poor, sandy soils and a due-south exposure.

Vinification: Grapes are hand-harvested in early October and transported to the winery where they are sorted and macerated at cold temperatures for five days in stainless steel vats. Aging occurs over a period of 20-24 months in a combination of 80hl and smaller 50hl French oak barrels.

Additional Information

The 2009 Inferno is deep garnet in color with a well pronounced perfume of spice, dried flowers, plum and jam. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and dry with elegant notes of berry, herb, cedar-spice.
