Nino NegriWebsite : www.ninonegri.it
Valtellina contains some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in Europe and has been a crossroads of cultures and people for millennia. The region’s wine and food has been shaped by the geography of the area and it is hearty, rustic fare, with the red wines produced from Nebbiolo, known locally as Chiavennasca.
Nino Negri is the region’s finest producer and their Valtellina includes four ‘crus’ - Sassella, Inferno, Grumello and Fracia. The wines are deep and complex with a structure that allows them to stand up to the most robust foods.
