Nino Negri Valtellina Superiore le Tense Sassella 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Sassella Le Tense 2008 - of which 60,000 bottles were produced - has a dark, vivid ruby colour; the perfume is complex, with a persuasive raspberry jam fragrance and with recollections of wild rose and ripe amarena cherries; a full flavour, smooth but well sustained, very tasty with great elegance and harmony, with pleasant undertones of prunes and persistent spices. Serve with: roast red meats, lamb, kid, game and mature cheeses.

Nino Negri:
Our vineyards are located in a unique environment that offers much but in return demands hard work, sacrifice and passion. Here the vines grow in exceptional terrains on the mountain slopes, protected from the cold northern winds and bathed in sun from morning to night.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
