Mamete Prevostini Albareda Sforzato di Valtellina DOCG 2008
6 PACK BUY
Spectacular /breathtaking scenery and vineyards clinging to mountains at altitudes up to 1000 metres, the Prevostini family (planted vines 70yrs ago) has risen swiftly since winemaker Mamete took over in 1988 to become a leading winery in the alpine region of Valtellina (100 kms from Milano in Lombardia close to the swiss border). The Ligurians (contemporaries of the Etruscans) terraced hillsides and planted vines in the region. According to Gambero Rosso, “Mamete Prevostini has a knack of interpreting the trends that are constantly sweeping through the wine world. It enables him to see the way forward, for example by eliminating some excesses in the cellar such as the muscular wines so much in vogue a few years ago.” We love Prevostini wines for their elegance with gorgeous perfumed aromatics, refined delicious flavour on the palate and superb balance. Most of their wines are made from the noble Nebbiolo grape, called Chiavennasca in Valtellina and Mamete Prevostini wines in Valtellina with nebbiolo rival the expressions in Barolo and Barbaresco regions of Piemonte. Their flagship wine Albareda Sforzato has won numerous tre bichierri awards in Gambero Rosso, Italy’s wine bible.
Estate’s flagship wine premium fruit sourced from Valtellina Superiore D.O.C.G. Sassella and Grumello.
Grape: Nebbiolo, 100% dried followed by maturation 18 mths in oak. Considerable step up the ladder in terms of concentration of flavour, complexity and finesse in this prestige wine.
