Nino

Nino

I've always wanted to try to make a Pinot Noir. I'm a passionate fan of the wines of Burgandy (the really good ones!) and in 1999 I took up my own challenge to make Pinot Noir in the Monferrato and planted a hectare of vines. I trust the minerality and the freshness of the territory will underline the elegance and delicacy of this variety.

I called it Nino, because at this stage it seems like a child: delicate, fun, with lots of fruit, clean and young.
