Il Glicine Valtellina Superiore Sassella Sandro Fay, natural wine, 100% Nebbiolo, serious, smooth, structured, aromatic. With the red colour turning to a burnt orange, Il Glicine from Sandro Fay has all the hallmarks of a top flight Nebbiolo. It offers a full range of aromas from blueberries, cherries and blackberries through to chocolate, coffee and black pepper. You will not be disappointed with the smooth, velvety taste, soft tannins, good acidity and hints of strawberry and cranberry. Sounds far too good to miss....it is...a top wine from a great producer.
