Mazon

Alto Adige Pinot Nero Riserva DOC 2016

About this wine

Pinot noir needs cooler locations with low sun intensity as well as loamy conglomerate soil, which it finds on the opposite side of the Adige valley. The sites MAZON and GLEN are the best-known Pinot noir locations in Italy.

The Pinot noir from the lower lying location of MAZON is characterized by its unique complexity. This profound wine needs a long period of ageing. Only then does it display its full potential with notes of black cherries, forest fruits and violets. These aromas are echoed on the palate and enriched by delicate roast aromas. The bold acidity and slender minerality enliven the dense structure of the wine.
MAZON: the complex one.
