ABOUT THE VINEYARD

Pinot Nero

Among all the red grape varieties of the world, Pinot Noir is considered one of the noblest (the only other comparison could be the Nebbiolo grape) and, at the same time, one of the most difficult to fully understand. It is, in fact, both for the oenologist and for the consumer one of the most complex and interesting tastings. Native to the French region of Burgundy, base of the most important wines of the area (and among the most famous ones of the world), pinot noir can also be found in the region of Champagne, mainly in the Mount of Reims, and, more recently, it has spread outside Europe: particularly in Oregon and California. Pinot Noir has a ruby red color and a typical bouquet of berries (especially currant, but also blackberry and raspberry). It is also rich in polyphenolic substances that allow a long aging.
