Winemaker's Notes:

A complex nose of spices, vanilla and firm fruit is followed on the palate by muscularity and a velvety dryness that lingers in the mouth.
My Notes:

About Pinino:

Although founded in 1874 the new re-invigoration of Pinino begun in 2004 with the new owners, Austrians Hannes and Andrea Gamon and Spaniards, Max and Silvia Hernandez and their oenologist Paolo Vaggagini. They had been successful in the fashion retail business and now turned to making wine. The estate is small, 16 hectares only, but its wines have created an enormous impact winning high scores and accolades. The ClanDestino name refers to the destiny of the two families and their combined passion for wines.
