Sandro Fay is one of Valtellina's true artisans, crafting a range of alpine Nebbiolo that beautifully showcase the variety of the region's vineyards. They describe Costa Bassa as their 'classic wine'. Made from relatively low (below 450m) vineyards in the Valgella subzone, it is a fragrant, energising rendition of Nebbiolo that is indeed classic Valtellina.

Lifted, peppery raspberry nose with spicy top notes. Fresh and light and yet long balsamic cherry fruit palate. Truly transparent and with a fine tannic spurt on the finish. Lovely subtle sour-cherry finish.
