Nino Negri today represents the Valtellinese wine reality. It is divided into four sub-areas that give the name to the different types of wine produced: Grumello, Sassella, Inferno and Valgella. The territory boasts two DOCG, the first most widespread is the “Valtellina Superiore” the other is the “Sforzato di Valtellina”.
The grapes, such as Nebbiolo (Chiavennasca), Prugnola and Rossola, from the Grumello sub-area, are vinified "in red" with a medium-long maceration. After 2 months in steel and 18 months in large 80 hl Slavonian oak barrels, followed by another 4 months of aging in bottle.
Grapes such as Nebbiolo (Chiavennasca), Pignola and Pinot Nero, come from the smaller sub-area called Inferno: the local name attributed to the terraced vineyards that are particularly inaccessible and tiring to work.
Wine produced in an alpine environment using Nebbiolo grapes vinified in white. The geological origin of the land dates back to the collision between the African and European plates that gave rise to the Alps. The great variability of the resulting rocks give minerality and elegance.
