Valtellina Superiore Valgella Riserva Carteria 2017 Sandro Fay

Variety: Chiavennasca (Nebbiolo) 100%

Pale ruby ​​red with garnet veins

The nose is very intense, with numerous and wonderful aromas. The trace remains similar in all Fay wines, while what changes are the facets. Aromas of plum and wild berries follow one another, of red rose petals, while on the frame float aromatic herbs, a distinctive feature of the Nebbioli grown in Valtellina. The notes of toasted, spices and roots increase the complexity of a more than fascinating wine.

On the palate it relaxes with grace and envelops the palate in an ideal gentle embrace. Supported by well-defined tannins, however well-mannered, it has the secret of harmony in the sum of softness. The balance of the parts confirms the value and the excellent score.

Valtellina of excellent quality. It is a perfect interpretation of Nebbiolo della Valtellina.
