St. Daniel

Pinot Nero Riserva 2017

  • Tasting notes

    Medium-intense garnet; red colour a seductive bouquet of cherry, damsons, red fruits and cinnamon; medium-rich on the palate, supple and luscious with flavours of black and red berries, velvety tannins and discreet hints of oak spice.

    Cellaring potential: 6 – 8 years.

  • Food Combination

    Delicately flavoured starters, charcuterie veal escallops in ginger sauce, roast partridge, seared duck with plum glaze, and meaty fish.

    Serve cool: 16° C.

  • Grape Variety
    Pinot Nero from 15-20 year-old, vertical espalier-trained vines.
  • Location

    Vineyards at an altitude of 350 – 450 metres a.s.l.; soils are volcanic with an overlay of morainal deposits. The climate is cool with striking differences between day and night time temperatures.

  • Yielding
    45 hl/ha
  • Wine Making

    The grapes are destemmed, softly pressed and briefly cold-macerated; the fermentation occurs at a constantly controlled temperature of 25° C for 14 days. The young wine then refines into casks – 2/3 in large 35 hl casks and 1/3 in barriques – where it goes through malolactic fermentation and remains for 12 months before bottling. The wine ages in bottle for further 12 months before release.
