Pinot Nero

Trentino Doc

The deep-lying, silty-clayey soils that originate from the siltstone beds of Werfenian age (dating 250 million years ago), characteristic of the Avisane hills (380 m ASL), provide the ideal substratum for the cultivation of the Pinot nero grape variety. The nordic winds channelling down the Adige valley, apart from serving to dry the grapes, generate sharp fluctuations in temperature which preserve and enhance the main aromas. Of a deep garnet-red colour, this wine has a particularly enchanting flowery-fruity, yet earthy aroma. It is lively and well-rounded on the palate, with a sensation of sour black cherries preserved in alcohol. Its balanced taste makes it a truly unique and highly distinctive wine.
