92 Points James Suckling
Pinot Noir, or known in Italian as Pinot Nero, is an old grape variety that is believed to have originated in the Burgundy region of France about 2,000 years ago. This wine is made in stainless steel and does not undergo any oak aging or exposure producing a final wine that is a pure expression of Pinot Noir with an impressively long finish. It finds an excellent balance between fruit concentration and acidity.
Pinot Noir is a very versatile wine food pairing wine. Suggestions include: risotto, pasta, pizza, barley and bean soups, stews, roasts, poultry, mushrooms, and burgers.
