Nino Negri is one of the best producers in Valtellina.
The 5 Stelle is the top wine: The Nino Negri 1997 Sfursat 5 Stelle is very rip because of its hot vintage. The wine is made in the passito style and has a lot of rosehip, a full-body, a medium long finish, balance, sweetness of old age, structure and freshness through acidity. Drink it now. 16.8/20 points.
The Nino Negri 1979 Valtellina Fracia Riserva has a lot of coffee, mocha, cherry, black cherry, forest floor, a full-body, balance, a medium to long finish. It is ripe but still has structure and tension. 17.8/20 points.
