Brut Pinot Nero at Regaleali. A fine wine with refermentation in the bottle, with a total of 36 months on the lees. Antique pink in colour, fine and continuous perlage with hints typical of the variety, delicate red fruit.
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.
