Pinot Noir

An aristocratic international variety, it is the progenitor of all the Pinots.

An aristocratic international variety, it is the progenitor of all the Pinots, apparently brought by the Romans to France, from there to be disseminated throughout the world.

The term pinot seems to derive from "pigna," most specifically "piccola pigna," for both the modest size of the cluster and the characteristic of having thick, closely-clustered grapes, just like the scales of a pinecone.

Among all the red berry vinestocks in the world, this is considered one of the most noble (the only possible comparison is probably with Nebbiolo), and at the same time it is the most difficult to interpret; this makes tasting perhaps more complex for the oenologist and the simple consumer.

Pinot Noir has a red color that is never too marked and is recognized for a very characteristic fragrance of little red berries (especially currants, but also blackberry and raspberry). It is absolutely suited to aging in the barrel.

Wine with good body and balance in the traditional version "in red" and in the vinified version "in white." Excellent with beef motsetta and with typical Valdostan dishes, with red meats and cold cuts. The version "in white" is suited for aperitifs and matches well with mountain trout.
