Pinot Noir 3 Bottles
Digital data sheets sent by email
Pinot Noir is one of the most iconic grape varieties in the world, difficult, elite, able to give life to high quality still and sparkling wines, being the basis of many Champagnes, Trento and Franciacorta. Elegant and refined, sought after.
It has a characteristic appearance both in the vineyard, where the berries are so dense as to give the impression of being a juicy pine cone, and in the glass, given its low polyphenolic concentration and noble air.
It shows great capacity for ageing but matures very early, which is why it does not achieve great results in very hot areas that could lead it to not fully develop its aromas.
The ideal habitat is Burgundy, in particular the Cote d'Or, but it gives great results also in Germany, New Zealand, Oregon and in the most ventilated areas of California and Australia; in Italy it is mainly cultivated in the North-East where it reaches excellent levels.
