Brown brick red color. Aromas and flavors of dried berries, roasted nuts, and dried flowers and leaves with a supple, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, brisk finish with nuances of roasted cherries pits and plums, singed herbs, and slate with fine, dusty tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A crisp and quenching Italian Pinot that will work nicely at the table with grilled or braised meats.

Regional Pinot Noir

Serve in a Burgundy Wine Glass
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.
