Costa del Nero Pinot Nero Oltrepo Pavese D.O.C 2007

Member Review by Giorgio:

Questo vino, ancora giovane, è prodotto in una zona particolarmente vocata alla produzione di Pinot Nero di ottima qualità. Al naso sprigiona forti sentori di Amarena e frutti a bacca rossa. In bocca ha una spiccata personalità e una buona persistenza, nonostante la sua giovane età risulta nel complesso equilibrato e suadente. Insomma, un ottimo Pinot Nero da abbinare a piatti dai sapori non troppo decisi ma comunque importanti.

Conte Vistarino:
Covering 826 hectares, mostly in the district of Rocca de'Giorgi, the Giorgi di Vistarino estate has remained faithful to the farming traditions and to the style of the great estates of the nineteenth century.

Covering 826 hectares, mostly in the district of Rocca de'Giorgi, the Giorgi di Vistarino estate has remained faithful to the farming traditions and to the style of the great estates of the nineteenth century. While the 180 hectares of vines -- all listed in the official Albo della DOC Oltrepo Pavese -- constitute the heart of our family's work, we also have 200 hectares of woodland, 120 hectares of arable land, and 100 hectares destinated to become forestland. Our family's dedication to the land and its values has led to the estate's conserving both its landscape and animal life, this just seventy kilometers ' 40 miles -- from Milan. Introduced to the Oltrepò Pavese at the end of the 19th century, the pinot nero grape has become synonymous with this area. Not only because of the 2,000 hectares here reserved for the burgundian variety, the largest in Italy, but also because the outcomes are consistently outstanding. More, within this area of excellence, Rocca de'Giorgi's pinot nero wines, along with those of the Valle Scuropasso are considered among the best. Whether used to produce still reds, or sparkling whites, spumante, the pinot nero grape has always been given special attention at Rocca de'Giorgi in particular. Indeed, such is the expertise developed over the years, that this most distinguished of international grapes is considered to be a local variety. Read less

at first and second sip it was fruity, semi dry and had a smooth finish. shortly after it developed a bitter after taste that was horrible. perhaps it was something else i ate with it, but i did not enjoy this wine ande could not finish the glass.
