Balgera Valtellina Superiore DOCG SASSELLA, BALGERA VINI DI BALGERA Balgera Valtellina Superiore DOCG SASSELLA, BALGERA VINI DI BALGERA No Reserve

Description

Balgera is a boutique winery located in Chiuro, one of the wine growing villages of Valtellina area, in the region of Lombardy. The winery has a wine history dated back to 1885. Today, Mr Paolo Balgera is the 4th generation wine maker. The winery offers classic old world styled highly fragrant Valtellina wines. These wines are made from the Chiavennasca variety, also known as Nebbiolo in Piedmont region. Valtellina is a vast mountainous area including few sub-zones. Balgera offers wines from these sub-zones, namely: Sassella, Grumello, Inferno and Valgella. These Valtellina Superiore wines have achieved DOCG status. Interestingly, the only white wine of IGT status is also made from the same red grape, and is a fruity and highly aromatic wine named Terrazze Retiche di Sondrio. A special wine called Sforzato is made from dried grapes. This is the region's acclaimed red wine of the highest quality. This wine is elevated to DOCG status in 2001.

The vineyards are cultivated on terracing, which are south facing. While protected from cold winds, they allow micro climate within valley for perfect ripening of grapes.

This wine has undergone 3 to 4 years of oak barrel ageing. This wine delivers the classic Valtellina, with flavours of raspberries and hint of hazel nut. This is enhanced with layers of tar and herbs. Well balanced.

Grape: Chiavennasca (Nebbiolo)
