Luca Faccinelli Valtellina Superiore Ortensio Lando 2017
Made from the noble Nebbiolo grape in the far north of Italy, bordering Switzerland; Valtellina wines are not often found in California, but look out for this region! Small French oak is used to give the wine a soft creamy texture not typically characteristic of Nebbiolo. Super light ruby color with intense forest aromas, herbs and root vegetables. Very low amounts of V.A. for, strawberry, black cherry, and tobacco are supported by medium tannins and acidity.
