Made from grapes grown in vineyards that lie on the edge of the woods, this sensual and idyllic expression of Pinot Noir is transformed into notes of underbrush, currant, and blueberry together with hints of rose petal in the glass. The structure and balance of this wine are interwoven in a lingering tension between its rich flavor and acidity. According to labelling laws covering organically grown products, on this wine can carry the words “ organic wine”. Like all Barone Pizzini wines , this is the result of choosing working methods, from vineyards to cellar, that are aimed at guaranteeing superior wine quality and keeping intact all the characteristics that uncontaminated nature can give grapes.
