    Summary:
    Produced only in the best years, Nino Negri's flagship wine 5 Stelle Sfursat di Valtellina is made from the regions finest selections of Chiavennasca (Nebbiolo).

    Terroir:
    Sfursat “5 Stelle” is sourced from estate vineyards in the higher elevations of the Inferno, Grumello and Valgella sub-zones sitting on southeast exposures at elevations over 1200 feet. Vines are densely planted and tended using the archetto variation of the Guyot system, which further limits yields.

    Vinification:
    Nino Negri limits harvest to only 25% of the total crop thus ensuring that only the highest quality fruit makes its way to the winery. Upon arrival the sorted bunches are placed into wooden crates where they will sit until December 12th until they are naturally dry. The juice is macerated and fermented in stainless steel prior to aging over a period of 18-24 months in Allier oak. 33,000 bottles produced.

    Additional Information:
    With a garnet-brick color; the wine shows complex aromas of cloves, cinnamon and pepper with plum jam, raisins and tar notes. On the palate, the wine has a dry, warm, full-bodied character, austere from its prominent acidity yet harmonious, with an elegant finish, and roasted hazelnut and licorice traces.
