Folonari Pinot Noir

Folonari Pinot Noir 1.50L    
Sku: 1287849*

Folonari Pinot Noir is made using grapes from selected parcels situated at higher than 200 meters elevation. The vines, trained by the cordone speronato or cappuccina systems, grow in soils of marl and sandstone. The grapes are vinified by the traditional red wine method at controlled-temperature, with about 10 days of maceration, followed by frequent pumping over. Alcoholic fermentation is followed by malolactic, then 80% of the wine ages at least 6 months in stainless steel, with the remainder in French oak barriques. The wine has distinct aromas of black currants and spices.

Tasting notes
The wine shows very penetrating aromas of blackcurrants, with notes of forest undergrowth and spices. On the palate, are attractive dry, savoury and balanced red fruit flavors, with traces of blackberry conserve and toasted hazelnuts.
