Mamete Prevostini Sassella Valtellina Superiore Marena 2016
Nebbiolo wines from Northern Italy tend to blend the grape’s emblematic juicy cherry with intense minerality while being airy and approachable — the 2016 Marena fits this profile to a T! Succulent black cherries mingle with cassis, toasted hazelnuts, saddle leather, peppery spices, blood orange zest, and a dusting of dried rose petals in this minerally Nebbiolo. Ethereal yet muscular, this Alpine red offers silky tannins and a pleasing textured mouthfeel. Enjoyable now, fewer than 200 cases imported into the States.
