Alto Adige Pinot Nero Graf 2016 Merano

Variety: Pinot Noir 100%

Red ruby ​​red.

The nose has classic and recognizable aromas that reveal the grape variety without hesitation. So here are the berries with the currant in the foreground, then raspberries and wild strawberries. By carefully rolling the glass, you can also observe the scents of the forest, with fallen leaves, chestnuts and moss. Even spices, such as vanilla and cinnamon, together with toasted aromas make the bouquet more complex.

In the mouth it is clean, agile and of good consistency. The hardness has acidity and minerality to excel on the just mentioned tannins. From the softness, the creaminess of the sugar alcohols, the heat of the alcoholic grade and a slight residual sugar draw a substance that gives a good volume to the whole. After swallowing aromas of spices and blueberries arrive. Persistent. Excellent value for money.

It traditionally accompanies Tyrolean dishes, such as Canederli with speck, grilled red meat with wild berry sauce. Even with the lamb chops. Excellent with stuffed artichokes with breadcrumbs, garlic, parsley, pecorino cheese, eggs, salt and pepper, stewed in tomato sauce.
