Grumello Valtellina Superiore "Sassorosso" DOCG Nino Negri
This wine is made by 100% Nebbiolo – Chiavennasca grapes. The Sassorosso vineyards are in the core of the Grumello area; the cultivation is made with the Guyot method on sandy soils located at 450 meters with a profit of 50 quintals per hectare for a careful selection of the grapes. The grape harvest takes place in October and the grapes macerate for 10 days at 26°C with several pumping over with a maximum of 6 times in a day in the first period. The refinement takes place in steel until December. Then 2/3 of the wine matures in French oak barrels of 20-50 hectoliters and the other part in barrels of 2°nd passage.
