Pignolo

Grapes:
Pignolo 100%.
Harvest:
Manual harvest from early to mid-October.
Wine making and ageing:
It ages 12 months in barriques, 48 months in large oak barrels followed by 12 months of bottle-ageing.
Colour:
Solid ruby red with purple shades.
Aroma:
Deep and fruity nose gorgeously layered with plum jam, blueberry and black cherry as well as floral hints of rosehip and violet. Eventually it displays a delicate and balsamic note of eucalyptus and tobacco leaf.
Sensory characteristics:
It is masculine, powerful and almost chewable with a backbone loaded with well ripened and quality tannins. An outstanding wine disclosing an endless persistence.

Pair it with aged blue cheese or with ground game and game bird.
