Triacca Valtellina Superiore Sassella 2016
|Region||Italy, Lombardy, Valtellina Superiore|
Ruby red tending to garnet; the bouquet has hints of raspberry, small fruits, violets and even dog rose petals; dry, velvety and robust, with the odd hint of hazelnut, leading to a liquorice and dried prune finish. Best drunk with Bresaola, first courses (Pizzoccheri), white and red meats as well as seasonal cheeses.
An elegant red, with sleek tannins trimming a fresh range of macerated raspberry, sandalwood, lavender and iron flavors. Well-knit, featuring a creamy, lingering finish that echoes mineral and citrus peel notes. Drink now through 2029.
