PINOT NERO

PINOT NERO

The common denominator of this international variety's several clones is their tendency to mature early. The clusters are shaped like pine cones – hence the name – either plain or winged, and tightly packed. The blue-black berry is medium-sized, round, thick-skinned and covered in bloom. The densely packed nature of the berries means that they are highly susceptible to mould. The wines that derive from this grape are often pale-coloured, due to a genetic lack of pigment, but in the best hands possess exceptional sensory qualities, especially in terms of fragrance.
