    Winemaker's Notes:

    In 1956, Nino Negri was the first house in Valtellina to produce Sfursat by means of a natural drying of the grapes. 5 Stelle is the finest Sfursat wine produced by Negri. Chiavennasca is the local name for Nebbiolo.

    With an intense garnet color, the wine has aromas of mint, eucalyptus, toasted bread, licorice root, sun-dried hay, with balsamic notes. The dense palate flavors include cocoa powder, black pepper, prunes and dried figs. Richly extracted, the wine exhibits vanilla notes and strong, ripe tannins.

    Food Match: roasts, red meat, Hard cheeses, game, beef.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Nino Negri's 2004 Sfursat 5 Stelle is rich and weighty in its expression of sweet dark cherries, spices, flowers, minerals and toasted oak. Made in an intense layered style, it offers notable depth as well as clarity in its detail. Today it comes across as quite youthful and in need of bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
