5 Stelle Sfursat
By Nino Negri
Origin: Sforzato di Valetellina, Lombardy, Italy
Varietal: chiavennasca (nebbiolo)
Producer's Notes: A wine with exceptional body and structure, and an almost unrivalled long, lingering aroma. Sfursat is the quintessential vino da meditazione: deep, velvety and full-bodied, with endless progression, making it ideal both with meals and on its own.
Sfursat is derived from a selection of Valtellina’s finest grapes that are subjected to “forced” natural drying. The resulting wine is particularly beefy and alcoholic, and is produced in limited quantities only in the best vintages.
