SAN LORENZO VALTELLINA SUPERIORE D.O.C.G. (case of 6)
This 100% Nebbiolo wine is from the sub-region of Sassella but is one of the most special wines from the region as it is grown inside the ancient walls of one of the oldest monasteries in the north of Italy, San Lorenzo. The monastery has given the name to the wine and while there is no activity in the monastery these days Mamete Prevostini has also committed to maintain the buildings and grounds.
The color is a mix of garnet and ruby red color. The aroma is one of raspberries and sour cherry with hints of spice.The flavor is intense with a mix of fresh berries and herbs. Great potential to save or enjoy now.
It has been maturing 16 months in oak barrels and aged for 10 months in bottle.
