Transplanted from Napa to PIemonte Italy... I blog for a passion about food, wine, and Italian culture. For now just discovering Piemonte one step (sip) at a time with big dreams to do wine tours in Italy. Hopefully I can help with any travel/wine ?'s!
75% Barbera and 25% Pinot Noir. Winemaker Michele Antonio Fino chose to plant Bourgogne Pinot Noir Clones because he thought the climate and terrain would suit these grapes the best. The town of Revello (in Piemonte but outside Langhe/Roero) has a gravelly soil, is literally at the foot of Monviso, part of the Alps. The climate is 30% rainier and the vines are planted on 30 degree slope!
I found this blend to be extremely interesting! Intense ruby red with warm and red fruit notes. Warm and and powerful on the palate but nicely balanced with proper acidity. An intriguing mix! (7 euros)
