Pinot Nero Riserva Trentino DOC
100% Pinot Nero. Light ruby red in color, with notes of black cherry and spice. On the palate, elegant fruit, well-integrated with the oak, and sweet toasted nuances. Good persistence, medium body, distinct elegance and finesse.
“Pinot Noir most probably arrived in Alto Adige two centuries ago. Today the area could be considered a sort of “Grand Cru” for Pinot Nero, as it consistently provides worldwide drinkers with world-class wines. Vineyards are often on the hillsides in sandy gravelly soil, ensuring that water drains well and the vines are not often stressed, something that is important for delicate Pinot Nero vines. Our Bollini features lovely fruit and great backbone with good persistence.”
