Pinot Nero (a.k.a. Pinot Noir) wines from northern Italy can often surprise with the quality and individuality evident in the better wines. For those looking for Pinot Noir options, Trentino can be an interesting source worth investigating further. This example comes with some garnet reflections, and a pure nose of ripe wild cherries, strawberries and notes of cranberries along with floral violet like aromas. On the palate, the same purity continues, showing a properly dry table wine of a fresh and delicate style. Ripe instead of over-ripe fruit is spiced with notes of black pepper and underbrush along with some hints of oak, and framed by rounded tannins.
