Production

The Pinot Noir vines are organically-grown in a combination of chalk, clay and silt soils on the rolling hills of Oltrepo Pavese. They are Guyot-trained at approximately 250m altitude, south / south-east facing. The grapes are harvested by hand and undergo careful selection. The grapes are macerated on skins for 8-10 days, then undergo malolactic fermentation in stainless steel. The wine is bottled in spring.

Tasting notes

Warm, black-fruited, spicy and complex aromas. The ripe wild plum and bramble fruit is offset by lively acidity and firm, youthful tannins. Excellent concentration and structure with a long amd spicy finish.

Food match

A great match with rich pasta dishes and middle aged cheeses.
