Marcel Zanolari 2011 Nebbiolo Valtellina Superiore

These nebbiolo grapes, locally referred to as chiavennasca, are sourced from vines that have been in production since 2001, some of which are air dried on the vine. Spontaneous fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tank. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is transferred to second- and third-use barrique for 36 months of aging. 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.
