Saracco Pinot Nero 2007

Saracco Pinot Nero 750ml 2007   
Sku: 1562260*

The Saracco winery is located in the village of Castiglione Tinella, between Alba and Santo Stefano Belbo. For four generations the Saracco family has produced a wine that is considered the reference point for Moscato d'Asti. Now managed by Paolo Saracco, careful vineyard management and strict control over the entire winemaking process has added to the family’s reputation and led to Paolo’s nickname, "The Maestro of Moscato.” Paolo believes that to properly communicate terroir in wine requires careful vineyard management and an intrinsic understanding of which vines grow best in which areas. To indulge his passion for Pinot Noir and further his knowledge of the estate’s terroir, he identified a small plot with a suitable microclimate and planted vines in the late 1990’s.

Tasting notes
The wine presents distinctive, Pinot Noir aromas ofred and black berries. On the palate, it is fruity and complex with soft, round tannins. A slight hint of vanilla complements the long and persistent finish.

Technical notes
This single vineyard wine was sourced from Bricco Quaglia, a 2.47 acre parcel in the Castiglione Tinella appellation. The grapes were harvested in the first half of September and fermented in steel tanks. The wine was aged in a mix of 225L barriques and larger barrels for 12-14 months. After bottling, the wine aged for 6 months before release.
