One of the most established writers in the wine world, Monica Larner, in her article “Italy, Valtellina: Nebbiolo Pheromones” published in the prestigious Robert Parker Wine Advocate, awarded 92 points to our Nettare Rosso di Valtellina DOCG 2018.
“The bouquet is elegant and streamlined, but this wine really comes alive in the mouth with fresh acidity and a zesty sense of energy derived from delicate berry aromas. A great value wine, the Tenuta Scerscé 2018 Rosso di Valtellina Nebbiolo Nettare opens to a lean and compact appearance with wild berry, violet, crushed stone, licorice and some iron ore, while the finish is tart and crisp. It would be great with sliced pears and cheese. But as they say here in Lombardy: “Al contadino non far sapere quant’è buono la Gorgonzola con le pere.” (Translation: Never let the farmer know how good it is to taste Gorgonzola with pears.) This was a wonderful release of 16,200 bottles.”
