Marcel Zanolari 2010 Sforzato di Valtellina Superiore

Like the Nebbiolo Valtellina Superiore, these grapes also come from nebbiolo vines in production since 2001, dried in the local tradition, through which 25% of the grape’s water weight is lost. The partially dried grapes are then briefly cold macerated and spontaneous fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tank. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is transferred to used barrique (10% new) for a minimum of 3 years. Valtellina’s nebbiolos tend to be lean and sculpted, delicate and floral — paler, less tannic, higher in acidity, and altogether lighter on their feet than their more famous Langhe counterparts.
