Sandro Fay's Ca Morei Valtellina Superiore is 100% Nebbiolo (Chiavennasca in Valtellina dialect). This single-vineyard red is grown at a higher elevation compared to Costa Bassa, the basic wine from Sandro Fay. This different exposure gives the wine more body and darker fruit. This wine is a perfect example of how Sandro Fay is committed to promoting single vineyards, which produce wines with distinctive characteristics due to their different soils and altitudes. They practice organic viticulture, and this Nebbiolo goes through fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 2 weeks with maceration for 6 days.
Afterward, it goes through malolactic fermentation and then aging for 12 months in barriques. Its aromas bring to mind classic Nebbiolo notes: deep, dark cherry, roses, licorice, and a faint trace of cinnamon bark. This phenomenal wine has a persistent yet soft tannin structure.
A gorgeous and immediately accessible expression of Nebbiolo.
Carries the freshness and vitality of youth with the complexity and depth often revealed by age. One of Valtellina’s most “Barolo-like” wines in profile but not power. Aromas bring to mind classic Nebbiolo notes. Elegant and energetic. Feels natural and unadulterated by oak

Drink now. It is an excellent pair with braised meats or polenta.

5 of 5 Aww what a Nebbiolo July 28, 2022
Reviewer: Chris Spence from Charlotte. NC  
I tried 2016 Ca Morei  and I like it a lot, but 2017 is awesome, this medium-bodied red is supremely sensual, with crisp acidity and sharp, tart sour cherry and cranberry flavors and fine smooth tannins.
