Corazza Pinot Nero
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Estate bottled vegan vintage.
- The fruit is grown with minimal, if any, human intervention.
- The region, between the Adriatic and the Dolomites, is unique in its soil composition and climate.
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Nero
Elaboration: After wine pressing and removal of the grape stalks, fermentation is in automatic wine-making vessels and activated by selected yeasts. Soaking occurs for about 8 days at a controlled temperature. Aging is in a stainless steel tanks.
Tasting Notes: Corazza Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) is dry, delicate, fruity, and vinous. A lighter version than the California style.
The Corazza Pinot Nero is a collaboration with one of Corazza’s most important wineries and follows a careful selection and study of one of the most important grapes in the world. The ties with this winery go back years, as it is located in the hometown of one of the Founders, Alex Corazza, right down the road from where he grew up! The expression of this Pinot Nero is quite different when compared to the more big bodied wines we can find on the West Coast of the United States. In fact, this wine is lighter and has a more prominent acidity and freshness, making it perfect for every situation, even to accompany fish dishes, which is often difficult to expect from a red.
