Quadrio is named for the 15th century Castello Quadrio di Chiuro that houses the Nino Negri cellars. Nino Negri Quadrio is sourced from the finest estate vineyards within the Valtellina Superiore DOCG. These south facing hillside vineyards sit at elevations above 1,100 feet and consist of soils of gravel, loose sand and silt.
The Grapes are allowed to hang until ultraripe and are finally harvested in early to mid October. The wine is traditionally vinified seeing 10 days of maceration on the skins followed by a cold fermentation in stainless steel. The wine is matured for 18 months in large French and Slovenian oak vats prior to bottling.
Quadrio is produced in the Lombardia region of Italy about 40 minutes from Milano. It is made with Chiavennasca the local name for the Nebbiolo grape, this is the same varietal used to produce Barolo, Barbaresco and Gattinara. Nino Negri produces this wine using 90%, Chiavennasca and 10 % Merlot The wine has a dark garnetred color, the wine shows distinctive, fine aromas of small fruits, raspberry preserves, roses and violets, with an herbal note. In the mouth, the wine has full, lively tart fruit flavors, elegant tannins and a lingering aftertaste, with traces of prunes and toasty oak.
