The nebbiolo grapes for the Sfursat 5 Stelle come from the vineyards on terraces well exposed to the south at an altitude of 400-450 metres on loose shallow sandy-loamy soils. The grapes were picked by hand in the most acclaimed parcels of Valtellina Superiore. After natural drying for 3 months they were vinified on their skins, with long maceration. Then ageing for 18 months in new French oak barriques followed by further ageing in the bottle for another 6 months. This results in a powerful wine with a long storage potential.
Colour: Deep ruby red.
Bouquet: Rich and highly complex aroma, with elegant sensations of plums preserved in spirits, and tobacco. It is redolent with spicy notes that disperse into hints of coffee.
Taste: The flavour is concentrated, vigorous, extraordinarily intense and pleasant, with an aristocratic undertone of ripe blackberries and spices. Its finish is full-bodied, rich and very persistent.
Longevity 20+ years.
