Sandro Ray Téi Rosso di Valtellina DOC 2019, Italy

Valtellina stretches along the Adda valley river climbing up the steep mountains of northern Lombardy. Soft, fruity, and round, this Rosso is Sandro Fay’s calling card to the estate’s unusual northern Italian Valtellina terroir. Juicy red and black berries, wildflowers, cedar, and fresh-cut herbs burst on the nose, while the palate is light, tart, and delicious–this is an easy-drinking red! This blend of 90% Nebbiolo with the remainder composed of Merlot, Brugnola, Rossola and Pignola derives from a south-facing vineyard and ferments in temperature-controlled stainless steel and ages in oak barrels.
