What does Sfursat mean? It means that the grapes have been "strained", that is to say withered before vinification. The Sfursat of Valtellina was in fact the earliest Italian dry red passito to obtain the DOCG (2003). The production of this particular Nino Negri excellence is produced with 100% Nebbiolo grapes . (Or Chiavennasca , as it is called in the area). The vines are cultivated in the best part of the " inferno " subzone, whose name reveals summer temperatures that are not too pleasant. After a careful selection, just over 30% of the dried grapes are selected to produce this wine, the company's flagship . The 5-star Sfursat is a must for every red wine lover.
