Pinot Nero 2016

“intriguing, passionate, mysterious”

I searched to find the most particular corners
of my vineyards, those most cold and windy,
for the most demanding product


Venezia Giulia IGT (Geographical Identification) – Azienda Agricola KANTE.
Obtained by hand-harvested, 100% Pinot Noir grapes.
The vineyard is located at 250 meters above sea level in the Carso Triestino; an area composed of red soil and limestone rock characterized by strong drainage.
With a density of 5,500 plants per hectare, a yield of 1kg per plant, and a single Guyot cultivation system, it has been the symbol of the winery’s indigenous research for over 20 years.
In the Cellar
Maceration for three weeks, first aging for 24 months in new and semi-new French oak barriques, then ageing for 12 months in 25hl barrels.
Final alcohol content is 12%.
Climate Trends
A great vintage year characterized by a warm spring with early ripening, followed by a summer with regular precipitation, and concluding with an exceptional dry vendemmia.
Wine Tasting
In the glass, the wine has a deep ruby red color. An international wine, that in this case, becomes a true and proper expression of its territory, the Carso, where it finds its ideal terroir.
Upon tasting, one can perceive notes of wild berries, aromatic herbs, pleasant roasts of minerality and balsamic flavors that are also found in the aftertaste. Serving recommended between 15 – 16°C.
