pINOT nOIR

Pinot Noir presumably originates from Burgundy, the progenitor of the pinot family. It most probably got its name from the characteristic pinecone shape of the ripe bunch.It is the oldest grape variety ever, in Italy the first references to vines like Pinot date back to 1500. It has a variable behavioural character, which makes it interact with the environment that hosts it in a sometimes-unpredictable way. The optimal choice of both the area and the soil of cultivation is therefore essential for this vine.  It is one of the most valuable and difficult red grape varieties in the world. It is a plant that asks a lot, both from the winegrower and the winemaker. It does not give regular results, and it needs relatively cold climates, with good day/night temperature range and then, when the conditions and the quality of the soils allow it (it prefers calcareous ones) , it’s able to offer wines of rare beauty. For these reasons it has found the most favourable environmental conditions at Borgo dei Posseri.
