Sforzato di Valtellina

Sforzato della Valtellina, Infinito, Tenuta Scerscé, 2016

Cheapest Worldwide Wine Searcher Price: 468 HKD

Cristina Scarpellini, a wine producer in Valtellina since 2008, embodies the essence of Tenuta Scerscé. From the very start, she embraced the Valtellina region with patience and reverence, tending to this captivating yet delicate terrain. While initially pursuing a legal career, Cristina’s profound passion for Nebbiolo and her forward-thinking business perspective led her to take on challenges at every level. She ventured into a land she deeply understood, tending to demanding, steep-sloped vineyards in the Alpine setting. This vertical terrain rewards those with unwavering commitment and a passion-driven spirit of sacrifice.

The term Sforzato means ‘strained’ in Italian, thus the grapes are forced through the methods: the grapes are late-harvested in October and left to dry in boxes for 2 months. Then, the appassimento method allows the sugars to accumulate in the brew, resulting in a rich wine. The Infinito symbolizes its potential, with length, elegance and body.

This wine is aged at least 24 months in oak barrels and 8 to 10 months in bottle. The wine exhibits a warm and spicy bouquet, rich notes of berries, fruit in alcohol, cinnamon, and pepper, as well as a pleasing softness and persistence.

This wine pairs very well with matured cheeses (Old Parmigiano-Reggiano, Comte Extra Vieux) and red meats.

Food Pairing:

Matured cheese (Old Parmigiano-Reggiano, Comte Extra Vieux), Red Meats
