The Grape
Originally from Burgundy, France, Pinot Noir has found a home in Italy’s Friuli Venezia Giulia region. Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate such as the one in Friuli and requires low yields to achieve high quality.
Winemaking:
Manual harvest. Soft press, fermentation temperature at 77°F. Juice is left on the skins for 8 days. Spends six months in barrique.
Tasting Notes:
Intense ruby color, profound aromas of ripe black fruits, spicy aromas of coffee and black pepper. A full mouthfeel with an elegant tannin structure brings with it spicy, black-currant and dark cherry driven flavors. Velvety finish and long aftertaste.
