PINOT NERO 'CENTA' 2012

MARCO DONATI, MEZZOCORONA, TRENTINO, ITALY

100% PINOT NOIR

The cool mountain air, with the vineyards nestling beside rocky cliff faces, means that this notoriously capricious grape variety can ripen in ideal conditions. Sometimes there can be an austere element to the taste, but this wine has a softer than usual character, with a smooth blackcurrant bitterness to the finish. The aromas coming through are wild cherry and currant and the deeply red and purple colour is very attractive. To be enjoyed with red and white meats – particularly those braised or boiled.
