Our Pinó Nero is flirting with France. The big grape of Burgundy, French oak barrels, the cold nights of the Apennines and an almost entirely independent vinification result in a characteristic freshness and structure to both scent and taste.
The wine is characterised by an aroma of red berries, vanilla, herbs and animal notes as well as a spicy and nuanced taste of red berries with a distinct minerality. An elegant and a pleasant fiery finish follows the well-balanced tannins and edgy acidity of the wine.
At an altitude of 500 m and situated between the summits of the Apennines, the Pino Neró-vines were planted in 2004, 2005 and 2008. The planting was planned to give as low a yield as 230-300 g per vine.
The grapes are harvested by hand into small baskets. After de-stemming the grape juice is fermented and macerated in open vats without no added yeast. Thereafter the wine is matured in French barriques for 8 months.
