harvest note

The growing season was especially warm and dry in 2016, giving perfect condition of maturity. The grapes were ripe and flavors well-developed. We began harvesting Pinot noir at the very beginning of September. The maceration revealed a nice concentration and intensity in the wines. These are well-balanced in 2016, with a nice aromatic complexity and harmonious tannin structure.

tasting note

Nice intense and bright color. The nose is very fruity, as a full red and black fruits basket, with delicate spicies too, liquorice, cinnamon and fragrance of flowers. The palate reveals a weel-balance wine, with a nice freshness enhanced by the minerality, and delicate flavors of cherries, blackberries and raspberries.

food pairing

Pairs well with poultry or red meat, as well with heavier seafood and roasted vegetables.
