DENOMINAZIONE DI ORIGINE PROTETTA
The grapes are grown in Trentino, in small vineyards sited on the hillsides, with a good sun exposure and a good ventilation, on poor soils, at an altitude comprised between 300 and 400 m.a.s.l.
The grapes are harvested by hand and once in the winery, they are de-stemmed. The fermentation takes place in small stainless steel tanks, at the temperatures ranging from 25° to 27° C and the grape skins are kept constantly immersed in the juice by punching them down as they are driven to the surface, in order to favour the extraction of aromatic substances and soft tannins. Once the alcoholic fermentation is over the wine is put into small wooden barrels and it undergoes the malolactic fermentation. The wine is then racked and matured in barriques for at least 15 months; after that the wine is blended and stored in stainless tanks and prepared for the bottling.
Light ruby red in colour, characteristic for del Pinot Nero. Fruity on the nose with scents of cherry and red berries such as strawberry, raspberry and blueberry.
Warm, elegant, soft and persistent on the mouth, with soft tannins and spicy notes due to the aging in wood.

IT GOES WELL WITH
This wine is an excellent accompaniment for a range of dishes which bring out the wine’s elegance rather than its power. It will keep well and will evolve for a number of years.
