WHWC Staff Notes: "The 2004 Balgera Sassella Valtellina Superiore Riserva is a quintessential example of the high altitude finesse that Valtellina's greatest sub-region brings to the Nebbiolo grape. The aromatic profile brings outsized complexity for the price point, with aromas of fresh roses, anise, raspberry and red plum seamlessly melding with secondary notes of dried leaves, new leather, and mint. The palate is, once again, all class as the medium weight and fine grained tannins resemble a well-built Volnay, with primary flavors of smoked prosciutto, strawberries, and maraschino cherries giving way to the earthy side of asphalt and dark cocoa powder. The wine is squarely in its prime drinking window right now, and needs no decanting or aeration to show its full spectrum of character. It's a wonderfully unique expression of Italy's most noble red grape variety." - Andrew Kitz (1/10/17)
