Castel del Lupo Pinot Nero, 2016 (Organic)
This spectacular unoaked Pinot Noir captures all the vigor and character of the small plot of organically-grown 15 year old vines in the La Quercia vineyard where it is sourced. A correct and pure Pinot Noir with real soul and expression.
100% Pinot Noir
|How it's made||
The Pinot Noir vines are organically-grown in a combination of chalk, clay and silt soils on the rolling hills of Oltrepo Pavese. They are Guyot-trained at approximately 250m altitude, south/south-east facing. The grapes are harvested by hand and undergo careful selection. The grapes are macerated on skins for 8-10 days, the undergo malolactic fermentation in stainless steel. The wine is bottled in spring.
Pronounced, warm, rip, black-fruited, spicy with complex aromas. Lively acidity offsets the ripe wild plum and bramble fruit. The palate combines concentration, delicacy and structure.
A great match with a rich pasta dish and middle aged cheeses.
