The Pinot Noir grape has enjoyed a long history in Italy’s alpine regions, where the cooler weather and high altitude create favorable growing conditions. Here in Trentino, Pinot Nero (as it is locally known) accounts for a significant chunk of the region’s hillside plantings. Grown in west-facing vineyards in the villages of Lavis and Giovo, it enjoys considerable afternoon sunshine while retaining its natural acidity. After harvest by hand and crushing at the winery, this wine enjoys a slow, temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel. Once dry, the finished wine is racked to neutral French oak barrels for approximately 5-6 months before bottling.
