Producer’s notes

Noble elegance. A 100% pinot noir grown with absolute precision by our farmers to obtain a wine that offers all the shades and nuances of the Piacentino territory. This wine is obtained from old vineyards that yield very small crops, few bunches that carry the flavour of the land in which they grew. The scent of pansy and blue flowers entwines with the sweet fragrance of durmast wood, caressing the palate with velvet-like sensations. Ripe fruit flows into the glass while this wine’s red transparent colour attests to its absolute elegance.
