Mamete Prevostini, Sommarovina, Valtellina Superiore, DOCG

41.00

Available on back-order

The first “Mamete” vineyard, acquired in 1996. Distinctive because it is found on a hill top in the Sassella region of Valtellina Superiore among the Nebbiolo vines. The grapes that are not perfectly intact or taken by mold are eliminated. After a gentle de-stemming the grapes, lightly pressed, are sent in stainless steel containers where the alcoholic fermentation takes place in a 15-days period, during which the skins are in contact with the must during the maceration with a temperature of 25°C. After the pressing the wine, placed in French oak barrels, undergoes the malolactic fermentation. Here it remains for a further 12-months period of aging. The process is completed with 10-months refinement of the wine in bottle before the release.
Deep ruby red color with garnet shades. Fresh fragrance with hints of red fruits, hibiscus and rose supported by intense balsamic and spicy sensations. The taste is warm, persistent and elegant with a pleasant ending of licorice and almond, confirming it as a wine of character, austere, compact.
Venisons, roasted meats, stews, spezzatini, cold cuts, braised beef, stracotti, young and mature cheeses.
