Valtellina Superiore Sassella Il Glicine 2018 Sandro Fay

Variety: Chiavennasca (Nebbiolo) 100%

Pale ruby ​​red with hints of garnet veins

The nose shines for elegance. Certainly as in all Fay wines, but in particular in Glicine. It has aromas of flowers and fruit from stems, of forest and wild berries, of tobacco and cocoa. Mint floats gracefully, bringing class and classicism.

On the palate it is enveloping and well structured. The entrance is of presence, as much harmony and balance are conspicuous. The subtle texture of tannins, as well as volume and creaminess, are obvious but not obvious. Persistent, between memories of floral, spicy and aromatic aromas.

Unico Valtellina di Fay from a sub-area other than Valgella, it stands out for its refined elegance. It is a perfect interpretation of Nebbiolo della Valtellina.
