Pinot Nero is a wine made of a variety of noble origins: from Burgundy in France, it was brought to South Tyrol about 100 years ago. The warm hillsides around Campodazzo, in the lower Valle Isarco, provide the ideal conditions for the growing of this acclaimed variety, giving the wine the archetypal expressiveness that has made it one of the most refined reds. Traditional maceration on the skins in temperature-controlled conditions in steel vats is followed by malolactic fermentation and ageing on fine lees in large wooden barrels.
This bright, ruby red is intense on the nose, beautifully structured with well-balanced, velvety tannins. It is very dry, with a pleasant acidulous note.
