Tasting Notes

This Pinot Nero is ruby red in color with slight orange tones. There are characteristic notes of red fruit, particularly raspberry, on the nose. On the palate, the wine is elegant and dry with velvety tannins through to the finish. The wine pairs well with a wide variety of elaborate foods, from heavier fish dishes to red and white meat dishes, and it can also be enjoyed with cheeses.
