Colavita Pinot Noir 2013
Enjoy on it's own, or try it with pan-seared chicken, roasted duck, cedar-plank salmon and beef Carpaccio.
The Colavita family traces its roots to the small town of Sant'Elia a Piansi, where, four generations ago, Giovanni Colavita founded the family olive oil tradition and Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil was born. Over the years, the Colavita family became masters at the delicate craft of "tasting" and blending olive oils and wines. Colavita wines boast key vineyard selection, harvesting grapes for each wine from their most ideal growing regions.
Attracting the most glory, prestige and fame to the Piedmont region, Nebbiolo in all of its expressions—Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero, Ghemme and Gattinara—creates a complex wine, truly unique for its delicate qualities combined with strength and a great potential to improve over time.
But Nebbiolo isn’t all there is to red wine from Piedmont! Barbera is the most planted variety and historically most popular as a dependable, food-friendly, everyday wine.
Beyond these two, a surprising number of red varieties call Piedmont their home. Worth a try include Dolcetto for its bold concentration and aromas of spice cake. Other grapes to investigate include Freisa, Croatina, Brachetto, Grignolino and Pelaverga.
