Valtellina Superiore D.O.C.G. - INFERNO
Product by: Balgera Vini
This wine is made exclusively from Nebbiolo grapes cultivated on the terracings situated between the two villages of Poggiridenti and Tresivio. The name “Inferno” derives from the climatic conditions in the area since the terracings where the vineyard are situated are sheltered by the Calvario promontory and consequently during the summer season the temperature is particularly high.
Its colour is vivid ruby-red while its perfume is ethereal and characterized by a violet and plum-jam bouquet. Its flavour is tannic, perky with a pleasant suggestion of roasted nuts.
Grape variety: Nebbiolo (Chiavennasca) 100%
Vinification: with soft pressing of the grapes and subsequent fermentation with maceration on the skins for about 10-12 days.
Ageing: 3-4 years in oak barrels and then aged in the bottle for about 6 months.
Alcohol content: minimum 12,5% vol.
Serving temperature: 18°-20° C.
FOOD MATCHING: It is superb with red meat roasts and game. Like all Valtellina Superiore wines, it improves with long ageing.
