Sandro Fay Rosso di Valtellina Nebbiolo 2011
A tiny estate cradled in a breathtaking valley in the middle of the Alps in the Valtellina region of Italy. The vineyards are cultivated on small steep terraces that have been hand built throughout the centuries. These are the highest elevation vineyards in all of Italy, reaching altitude of 3000 feet. The dominant grape is the nebbiolo, which produces the famous Sforzato della Valtellina of which Fay’s is one of the best rendition. This is a grape varietal that welcomes the challenge of being paired with strong, flavorful meats and cheeses and will compete well with spicy Italian meats and well-aged Parmesan cheese.
