The Pinot Noir of Les Cretes

Why: The alpine climate strongly influences the organoleptic characteristics of the local wines: the grapes, harvested late, are subjected to strong temperature changes due to the autumnal thermal excursion (+22?C during the day and 0?C at night); this phenomenon, typical of mountain areas, favours the formation of aromatic precursors in the bunch, which considerably enrich the odour component of the wines. The work in the vineyard of Les Cretes reflects the strong desire to minimize pesticide and fertilizer interventions, respecting the natural production factors.

Marketed by: Giordano Vini S.p.A. via G. Cane 47bis-50 12055 Diano d'Alba (CN) - Italy.

Valle d'Aosta Pinot Nero DOC - Les Cretes

This is the logic behind the Les Cretes Pinot Noir, produced since 1995 at La Tour, not far from the medieval hermitage that has become the company's logo on the label. The Pinot Noir grapes, contrary to traditional methods that require vinification in wood, are vinified here entirely in steel. This choice is intended to highlight the desire of Les Cretes to create a fresh and pleasant wine, able to stand out for its elegance and finesse.

Intense ruby red, with violet reflections.Bouquet Intense and delicate with fresh notes of red fruit, pleasant hints of underbrush and sage.Fresh and sapid taste, balanced, with a fine structure and a soft and velvety tannin, paired with blue cheeses, appetizers, pasta with meat sauce, meats and cold cuts, roasted and grilled meat, white meat stew.
