Villa di Bagnolo IGT

Made from 100% Pinot Noir, the unique terroir of Villa di Bagnolo enhances this noble yet difficult variety’s distinctive harmony. The cool, south-facing and well-ventilated vineyards benefit from excellent day/night temperature swings and moderate altitudes, which favor slow and even grape maturation. As Monte Ferrato is an extinct volcano, the origins of the soil are volcanic and particularly rich in iron, which is instrumental in giving Pinot Noir its complexity. This particular soil composition is also conducive to the well-balanced flavors and components that characterize Pinot Noir.
