'Quadrio' Valtellina Superiore DOCG 2011

Nino Negri

Quadrio is named for the 15th century Castello Quadrio di Chiuro that houses the Nino Negri cellars.

Terroir: Nino Negri Quadrio is sourced from the finest estate vineyards within the Valtellina Superiore DOCG. These south facing hillside vineyards sit at elevations above 1,100 feet and consist of soils of gravel, loose sand and silt.

Vinification: Grapes are allowed to hang until ultra-ripe and are finally harvested in early to mid October. The wine is traditionally vinified seeing 10 days of maceration on the skins followed by a cold fermentation in stainless steel. The wine is matured for 18 months in large French and Slavonian oak vats prior to bottling.

Production: 50,000 bottles

Additional Information

With a dark garnet-red color, the wine shows distinctive, fine aromas of small fruits, raspberry preserves, roses and violets, with an herbal note. In the mouth, the wine has full, lively tart fruit flavors, elegant tannins and a lingering aftertaste, with traces of prunes and toasty oak.

    "A modest red, framed by fresh acidity and light tannins, this offers subtle notes of dried cherry, ground anise, mocha and tobacco. Drink now."
