Grape/Blend: 100% estate grown Pinot Noir grapes from Morro d’Oro and Notaresco in the province of Teramo. Vineyards have a south/southwest exposure and average altitude of 250 meters a.s.I. Calcareous clay soils with gravel.
Wine-making Process: Soft pressing is followed by maceration for about 15 days. After racking, the wine rests in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature (20°C} and then completes the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. The wine is racked and then bottled; followed by bottle refining
Tasting Notes: The color is ruby red with garnet highlights. Aromas of violets with hints of currant, blackberry, raspberry and spices . Fruit-forward and smooth on the palate with fine tannins and balanced acidity. Dry persistent finish. More complex notes (leather, tobacco, spices) develop with age. Soups, pasta dishes with meat sauce, roast/braised meats and wild game. Ideal companion with medium-aged cheeses and charcuterie.
