Pinot NoirVallée D’Aoste DOC
A noble and delicate variety that has been a part of the Valle d’Aosta’s wine heritage since the time when the region belonged to the reign of Burgundy. The best expression fo this wine can be found in our mountains between 600 and 850mt a.s.l where a pronounced thermal excursion guarantees an excellent quality grape to harvest.
100% Pinot Noir grapes make up this structured and balanced wine.
A ruby colour that deepens to garnet with a complex range of scents that linger and balance out the intense red fruits. A dry, balanced palate with good alcohol and long finish.
