Subtle ruby-red colour with the bright rosé facets typical of Pinot
Nero, a very elegant aroma with spicy white pepper, fruit and flower
notes; it stands out on the palate for its elegance and balance, for its
length and elegant wood notes and for the enjoyable sensations it
arouses on the sides of the tongue. It may not be a traditional
Piedmontese wine, but it makes an excellent match for our agnolotti
and for roast poultry.
Serving temperature: 14-16°C – serve in a fairly capacious glass to
