Ripe black fruits, hints of spice, vibrant acidity.

More Info

Tasting Notes: An expressive, complex nose with wild raspberry and crunchy cherry aromas combined with darker, black fruits and a hint of spice. Ripe fleshy fruit is balanced by bright acidity. The finish is juicy and lightly savoury with soft, balanced tannins.  Excellent Pinot Noir from the cooler slopes of Il Cascinone. Distinctly varietal but with the structure and spice typical of Piemontese reds.

The grapes were cultivated in one vineyard plot with chalk soils, 350m above sea level in the Monferrato hills. After experimenting with earlier vintages to find the best vinification method for Piemontese Pinot Noir Carlo decided to combine the results of two parcels - 50% underwent fermentation in stainless steel with a portion (20%) of whole bunches – whilst the grapes for the remaining 50% were crushed and fermented in large wooden casks. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel. After blending the wine spent 12 months in oak - 75% large cask and 25% barriques - before bottling.

Food Match : Perfect pairing with Piemontese agnolotti al plin - pasta parcels with pork, spinach & cheese.
