Blog: Pinot-Nero | Grape variety

In northeastern Italy, as well as in Lombardy, the Pinot Nero red wine grape is very common and produces excellent results. The grape variety, also known as Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris or Pinot Noir, places the highest demands on vineyard location as well as cellar technique. Many ambitious wine producers try their hand at this capricious grape variety, but only a few succeed in tapping the full potential of this grape.

Because Pinot-Nero - a noble and ancient grape variety - requires a lot of care and makes high demands on climate and soil. If the growing conditions are good and the work input is high, this grape variety runs to top form and is worth the effort with one of the most beautiful red wines in the world.

The Pinot Noir is always an elegant red wine, full-bodied, velvety and with fruity aroma and nuances of almond. The typical Pinot Nero wines are reminiscent of red fruits in the aroma, from strawberry to cherry, blackberry and currant. In the Pinot Noir variations aged in barrique barrels, pleasant vanilla and cinnamon notes are added. The Pinot-Nero is a wine for the cooler season, strong variants best accompany roasts or game. The rare 'Blanc de Noir" - i.e. white-grape versions please with appetizers and white meat, or as an aperitif. - Gerardo [TS06/23]"Pinot Noir - a magic word for experts, connoisseurs and die-hard wine lovers, as it is considered by experts to be the noblest and finest red wine variety in the world. Yet it is capricious, difficult to grow and makes very high demands on soil, location and climate." - Falstaff
