Nino Negri Valtellina Superiore Quadrio 2016
Established in 1897, the Nino Negri estate produces wine in the Valtellina DOCG in Italy’s Lombardy region. The primary varietal here is Chiavennasca, the local name for Nebbiolo. The variety has been cultivated in the area for over 1,000 years and all Valtellina DOCG wines must contain at least 90% Chiavennasca. The winery is located in the city of Chiuro in the 15th Century Quadrio Castle, and the castle sits above an array of underground cellars which house thousands of barrels. This is the perfect summer red!
