Winemaker's Notes

100% Pinot Noir from the Casablanca Valley. With some aging in French oak and a very soft filtering, Aurelio was finally satisfied with this Pinot Noir. Being such a difficult grape to vinify, Aurelio believes this has strong varietal character and will aim for greater complexity in next vintages. Somewhat darker color than the typical Pinots, it has a deeper ruby color. The aroma is that of a Classic Pinot Noir, with very floral notes with hints of violets and berries. To the palate, fine vanilla tastes and a medium body. A very satisfying wine with long, smooth and elegant finish. No need to decant.
