Italy / Bianco Umbria IGT
Pinot Nero Rose is produced from a single vineyard, located on the right bank of the Corbara lake, at an altitude of 1640 ft. This rosé is the original interpreter of Pinot Noir in Umbria. The fresh exposure, the soil deep and rich in skeleton, combine to give a grape with excellent qualities, both in terms of aroma and polyphenol. It is entirely composed of Pinot Noir grapes, harvested in late August and vinified in white.
Thanks to a rainy spring and an ideal June & July. At harvest, the grapes showed a wonderful condition, maintaining fresh characteristics and plenty of harmony and balance.
Light pink with reflections of ruby, this wine is full of aromas of zesty citrus fruit, some earthy notes and charming hints of red fruits like strawberry and cherry. On the palate is bright and refreshing, with flavors that mirror the nose.
Excellent as an aperitif or together with fried dishes of fish and vegetables, fresh cheeses and tasty meats, à la tartare, sausages or salami.
