Light ruby color. Aromas and flavors of kirsch, smoked plum, caramel, oregano, graphite, and carob with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light body and a polished, charming, medium-length finish with notes of hints of blood orange with light oak flavor. A simple yet satisfying Pinot Nero that will play very well at the table.

Pinot Noir, though not celebrated in Italy, is grown in a few zones in the country. This includes the Oltrepo Pavese zone in Lombardy, a few areas in the Veneto region and most famously, in the region of Trentino-Alto Adige. These are cool climate areas and the Pinot Noir (or Pinot Nero) wines offer delicate cherry and strawberry fruit, subtle spice and tart acidity. Most examples are meant for consumption within their first three to five years, while the best from Alto Adige can age for a decade.

These Pinot Noirs pair beautifully with poultry, duck breast and certain fish such as tuna and halibut.
