Bontonero 2016

The Valtellina producer Mamete Prevostini manages the dear Nebbiolo grape in a completely unique way. Often their wines are filled with character in combination with a silky body. Their somewhat rockier Botonero has impressed on me and I have previously written on the blog about two different vintages. Now it's with great curiosity that trying out the vintage of 2016, when it's finally available.

Botonero -16
The wine is still very young and shall be assessed accordingly. The scent is filled with familiar Valtellina fruit of ripe cherry and blackberries together with a finishing spiciness and licoricy. The taste is dense with simultaneous elegance. No doubt that the wine is a worthy successor to earlier vintages of Botonero. The mouth is overflowed with a fresh blend of silky cherry aromas, pomegranate, licorice, vanilla and fresh herbs. Botonero 2016 will be a delicious wine in the future, but just now need at least two years in the basement to show its full potential, because the 2016 vintage will be really good. Have a great weekend!
