Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri

Made with 100% Pinot Nero selected grapes, Noir has a ruby red color with light orange highlights, which become more pronounced over time. 2015 is a great vintage pinot noir.
After hand-harvesting, the must is fermented at controlled temperatures in cubic stainless-steel tanks for 21 days. Afterwards, it is aged for 12 months in French barriques, and it is refined for other 12 months in the bottle before releasing. You may not expect a Burgundy-style Pinot Noir up in the hills of Oltrepò Pavese, but you will be surprised by this very complex, medium-body Pinot Noir. The bouquet consists of fine, intense, and elegant aromas with hints of red berries, cherries, rose hips, and leather. The flavor is full, rich, and determined with a pleasant persistence and length on the palate. This elegant wine can be enjoyed with starters and first courses, roasted meats, pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna, and mushrooms dishes.
