The 2002 Valtellina Superiore Sassella Riserva Rocce Rosse will give readers a very good idea of how top-notch Valtellina Nebbiolo develops with age. Primary flavors are now faded into the background, replaced with a striking array of dried rose petal, lavender, mint and sweet pipe tobacco. A wine for lovers of classic, traditionally made Nebbiolo, the 2002 Rocce Rosse delivers the goods, and then some...Don't miss it. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

In an absolutely perfect place. Beautiful. Like a barbaresco at its peak, but that's not totally fair because this is something in and of itself. Wonderful wine.

Just drinking meh. Had it in Milan and it may have been heat damaged. Fruit core was not there. Possible bad bottle, hopefully

Limpid, egg whites effective, like a burgundy PN, still structure to follow food, nothing aggressive very elegant

Excellent. Really awesome. Drinks like a burgundy but with a little more body. Holds up well to balsamic

Cherry, smooth tannins, balanced! Different than the super bright Valtellinas I've tried. A great start to Vacation Nebbiolo!
