INFERNO CARLO NEGRI Valtellina Superiore DOCG

Inferno is the smallest of the five Valtellina Superiore DOCG subzones, with 48 hectares on the slopes of the Rhaetian Alps, along the right bank of the River Adda, in the municipalities of Poggiridenti and Tresivio in the province of Sondrio. Its name is derived from the steep slopes and the high summer temperatures caused by the sun reflected off the rock. “Bacchus’ Paradise is that red Inferno of embers and flames, with a scent infused with plums and blackberries, which is preferable to Paradise”, Abbot Morelli wrote in his short poem entitled “Dionisos”. Negri started producing Inferno in 1945.
