Valtellina producer Mamete Prevostini has done it again. All of their wines are true wine art in higher Nebbiolo school and a pleasure every time we get the opportunity to open a bottle. Now in early March Swedish Systembolaget release their Botonero 2013 from the municipality e di Sondrio Teglio, more a rock'n'roll wine compare to its siblings.
Botonero 2013 from Mamete Prevostini
Grill wine of the year
A light ruby color reveals nothing of the power available in the glass (like a wolf in sheep's clothing). The fragrance reveals so much more with an amazing combination of violet and charcuteries that create a great desire for more. And from the first sip, you are totally sold. For meaty aromas together with violets, rosemary and fantastic tannins creates an amazingly good red wine.
So perfect for spring grill in connections with juicy steaks and of course a wine-selection if you want to be praised for your good taste. Although it's only February, yet I dare say that for this money, it is no doubt that Botonero 2013 is one of best wine bargains this year.
