This ain't like any Nebb you've tried before. Valtellina is up so damn high they have to get helicoptors to airlift the fruit off the mountain at harvest. Very little tannins, outrageous perfume and racy acidity typify wines from this region. This is the last of the Pettirosso before the new vintage comes so its on a serious deal. Fully mature Nebb at 6 years of age. What a world. STSWine

The Pettirosso is a 50:50 blend of Grumello and Sassella fruit. Boldness coming from Grumello and delicacy with fine, mineral traits from Sassella. Try the Superiores from each of the sub-regions and you’ll see these characters. The blend works beautifully. The wine has impressive depth and length. What really strikes me is the harmony. The wines are so together. Excellent acid is balanced by dark sour cherry fruit and supple fine tannins. With all of their wines they have been pushing maceraction to 100+ days and it has worked beautifully introducing complexity and refining the plush textures. WINE DECODED
