N°1 - Numero Uno
N°1 – Numero Uno, a magnificent declination of Nebbiolo grapes left to dry, comes from the desire to interpret in a modern key the Sforzato of Valtellina. Devotedly kept in renowned French oak barrels for years, this wine is the ambassador of its own territory, able to reproduce both its elegance and value. This fine nectar, with an eloquent name, is obtained from vineyards of at least seventy years old. It bewitches with its scents and persuasiveness.
Fine and complex on the nose, with notes of spices, pepper, black fruit jam and vegetable hints, it presents ethereal and balsamic nuances that make their way between floral notes of violet and plum compote, followed by tertiary scents of licorice, cloves, cinnamon and scie boisé. On the palate it presents a complex aromatic spectrum, intriguing and seductive from the first sip, in which chocolate tones, notes of vanilla, roasting and overripe fruit stand out.
Framed by an elegant tannin, it is characterized by an extractive weight well transcended by the perfect balance of the whole. The result is a juicy and deep picture, ideal for the accompaniment of large red meats such as the saddle of roe deer.
