Sforzato Valtellina Superiore DOCG

Vintage 2016

Product by: Azienda Agricola Le Strie


This is the first vintage in which the winemaker decides to produce SFORZATO D.O.C.G.

VINEYARDS: for making this wine the Nebbiolo grapes are accurately selected. The grapes come from vineyards located in Castione A. and Sondrio Municipality (20%) and Teglio Municipality (80%). All the vineyards are grown according Guyot method, bearing 8-10 buds per cane. In this way we keep grape yield low and this is essential for producing high quality wines.

VINIFICATION: the grapes were hand-picked early in october using small boxes containing about 4 kg each.

The boxes were transferred into a cellar and allowed to dry up to the end of december when the grapes went through the de-stemmer and crusher.

Vinification took place in stainless steel vat and lasted for 20 days; then the wine was drawed off and allowed to finish alcoholic fermentation.

After malolactic fermentation the wine was transferred into a mediumsize oack barrel and allowed to mature for about 24 months. Our SFORZATO has spent 5 more months in bottles before selling.

COLOR: Deep ruby red with orange highlights.

PERFUMES: Ripe red fruit, spices and liquorice.

TASTE: Dry, rich texture, round, long, slightly tannic.

FOOD MATCHING: Roasted red meat, game, mature cheese.
