Valtellina wine-grower and producer Nino Negri is a perfect combination of tradition and technology. To ensure top-quality results, we must invest continuously and significantly in our vineyards and cellar. Today, the cellar houses 1500 new barriques of French and American oak and we have substituted the big old barrels with over 100 smaller barrels to permit a greater selection of the wines. The stainless steel vats and fermentation vessels have also been replaced recently and allow us to implement new wine-making systems. We have made major investments in our vineyards, where 11 of the estate’s 31 hectares have been replanted with new clonal selections of Nebbiolo according to new contour planting systems. This estate was founded 100 years ago and has managed to combine considerable determination and targeted insight from generation to generation , two characteristics that enable our wines to express their full greatness.
