Review Of A Red Valtellina Superiore

Triaccio ‘Sassela’ Valtellina Superiore 2002 13% alcohol about $16.50 DOCG

I first tasted this wine with beef ribs. It was round but a bit intimidated by the spicy cumin and curry sauce. Paired with a slow cooked beef and potato stew it handled itself better. It was quite fruity and cut the meal’s grease. It almost tasted like a Beaujolais.

Final verdict. I was a bit disappointed with this wine, DOCG is supposed to mean top of the line, and it was not.
