Carteria Valgella Superiore Riserva Sandro Fay, Natural Wine from the Valtellina, 100% Nebbiolo (Chiavennasca), mineral, elegant and rich Nebbiolo of great class. Carteria Valgella Superiore is the finest cru of Fay’s superb range of single vineyard Nebbiolo. The vineyard is located at 450 metres above sea level. The cool climate and intense sunshine mean the wine is intensely concentrated yet with a backbone of elegant acidity. The nose opens with ripe red anddarkfruits, rose and spice. The palate follows through with fine tannins and great warmth. This is superb, complex, earthy Nebbiolo, a very personal wine that demonstrates Marco Fay’s commitment to quality and regional identity. Since 2013 Carteria is a Riserva wine meaning it ages for longer in barrels.
