Pomino Pinot Noir is a wine of surpassing elegance. Delicate fragrances of dark cherry and wild strawberry meld together with floral notes of sweet violets.
In 2013, the growing season at the Pomino Estate was characterised by numerous winter rains and snows, which, however, were never extraordinary in scope. In fact, these weather conditions proved very positive for the vineyards as they provided ample water reserves, nurtured the growth of plants used for green manure, and also helped in preserving the soil from erosion. Similarly, in winter the temperatures were relatively mild, and the summer warm but never excessively so and rarely did temperatures rise above 30°C, except in the first week of August. The grape harvest, begun in the first week of September, took place during pleasantly warm and sunny days.
Pomino Pinot Nero 2013 has a clear and delicate ruby-red color. To the nose the wine is an explosion of fruity aromas with a prevalence of cherries and blackberries mixed with cinnamon, cloves and notes of tabacco and coffee. In the mouth, the wine is fresh and soon displays its good persistence, whilst its soft tannins and an aftertaste of mixed berries play harmoniously with the wine’s bouquet. Tasted in December 2016.
