Tasting Notes

Trattman is the winery’s flagship, award-winning wine: a selection of 100% Pinot Noir sourced from the slopes of the ‘Trattmann’ farm in Mazon, by many regarded as one of the best sites for Pinot Noir in all of Italy.

Ruby red in color with slight tones of grenadine. An intense and complex nose with hints of ripe fruit, cherry and maraschino. A soft and delicate palate with a good fruity tannic structure and elegant finish. Pairs well with roasted meats, game, and spicy cheeses.
