A light red with aromatics of morello cherry and faint earth. Light to medium bodied with pure red cherry and cranberry fruit, tannins are firm but superfine and give a softly bitter contrast, lovely lines of acidity and vibrant red fruits to finish. A great example of the variety.92 pts - Ken Gargett (Wine Pilot)
Pinot Noir is known as Pinot Nero in Italy and while it might not be the first variety one thinks of when looking for Italian wines, it is certainly making a mark, especially from cooler regions such as Trentino. An attractive crimson red, we have notes of dry herbs, animal skins, leather, red fruits like cherries and raspberries plus a sour cherry note on the finish. Quite spicy, there is the merest hint of oak. Supple palate, good balance, fine acidity, impressive length and an appealing texture all contribute to making this an exciting example of the grape and definitely one worth exploring for the Pinotphiles among us. Very much savoury in style, it should age and improve for at least five to six years with lots to like here.
