Pinot nero

Trentino Doc

Pinot Nero is cultivated in high-altitude vineyards in Trentino, where the dramatic daily temperature changes encourage the formation of aromatic substances.
The grapes grown on the hills of Lavis, Meano and the lower Cembra Valley are ideal for producing a fruity, smooth and long-lived wine.
The ‘Storie di Vite’ Pinot Nero has a garnet red colour and a characteristic aroma of sour cherry, plum and raspberry. The body is smooth and velvety with tight-knit, crisp tannins.
