Nino Negri Wine Dinner, 12/10
Join us for a special evening on Tuesday, December 10th, as we host the fascinating and unusual wines of Nino Negri- and those of winemaker, Casimiro Maule, hailing from the steep, terraced hills of the picturesque vineyard which overlooks the Valtellina region, on the Italian and Swiss border. The wines from Nino Negri are impeccably balanced, nuanced and wholely original.
The Valtellina is the most perfect example of a winemaker's obsession, as creating wines from this terroir, is one of the most humbling and punishing tasks, imagined. This is Italy’s largest terraced area of viticulture: an impressive 1,500 miles of dry walls that support the terraces are distributed over the 25-mile strip. But working this land is a monumental, back breaking toil, as steep, nearly vertical vineyards from 2,400 to 3,000 feet elevation rule out the use of any mechanical equipment. All work, from removing soil to harvesting grapes is done by hand, in this incredibly challenging environment.
The star and primary varietal here is Chiavennasca, the local name for Nebbiolo. The variety has been cultivated here for over 1,000 years and it is said that it was brought from here to neighboring Piedmont in the 14th Century. The wines are aged here in medium-sized oak, almost exclusively French. All Nino Negri wines age for at least two years before they are released to ensure optimum maturity at time of bottling.
The estate specialty is Sfursat ("strained" or "forced"); a wine made from grapes harvested by trained pickers and dried for 100 days in the cool, dry, alpine air. This winemaking style combines the opulence of Amarone with the elegant complexity of Barolo.
We are ecstatic to announce that Winemaker, Sarah Maule will be joining us in special appearance for this event. Tickets are $75 per person, exclusive of tax and gratuity, limited to 34 seats, and can only be purchased by calling us at 401-274-7177. We look forward to seeing you.
