VARIETAL NOTES

  There is no disputing the legendary stature and romanticized character of the Pinot Noir grape. It epitomizes elegance for wine drinkers and taunts winemakers with its finicky nature. In Friuli-Venezia Giula, Pinot Noir has found an ideal home in well-drained clay soils rich with limestone. These fertile soils feed the Guyot-trained vines -- the controlled growth assuring fruit of the higest quality. The gravel, pebbly soil and the unique microclimate contribute to the aromas and flavors.

FOOD PAIRING

Ideal as an aperitif, with seafood starters and cold cuts. Delicious with spicy shrimp gumbo.
