MARSETTI Rosso di Valtellina 2018 75cl
Largely Nebbiolo (called Chiavennasca locally) with around 10% of local grape varieties Pignola, Rossola and Brugnola. Valtellina is North East of Piemonte and the wines, although sharing a lot in common with Nebbiolo wines from there, I think are more restrained and elegant. This is very well balanced; dry, absolutely, but with ripe cherry fruit and very expressive aromas. One our very favourite wines and we're yet to meet anyone who fails to be won over by its obvious charms.
