Italy  Valtellina 

Single vineyard Valtellina Superiore DOC, from La Cruus in the Inferno area. I had had my heart set on the Sommarovina Sassella for years, but when I tasted the new addition La Cruus 2015 in March 2018 I was so impressed I changed my plans and bought this one instead. It was just as complex but also more immediately accessible. This wine won Platinum, Best in Show at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2018 so it's not just me! In their words: Light, pale garnet red. Fresh, light, teasing yet intricate aromas of fresh hedgerow fruits, sweetly expressed. There's great aromatic refinement here. On the palate, the wine is light and acid-structured, yet that acidity is amply filled with dry, refined fruit flavours, grave and nuanced. It's a Nebbiolo with a genuinely lacy tannic structure; it has great length; and despite the cool, fresh, high-country style, there is a lingering warmth to inform the finish
