The color is delightful garnet color towards a light ruby. Its bouquet is very persistent with hints of wild berries, raspberry and strawberry. The taste is similar to the bouquet, the fruiti s generous and exciting: a light berry quality along with zesty acidilty and mild tannins. Our Pinot Nero pairs well with midly-seasoned red meats (stewed roast) interesting for pairing with dark meat poultry such as guinea fowl, pigeons, ducks, geese. It can also be accompanied with fish, such as tuna tartare and smoked salmon.
