Miolo Rar Pinot Noir 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

50% of the wine passes through French barrique for six months, new wood Fine French oak nose, small red berry fruits, a bit dark toned, black fruit, black spice, air brings out some. More wild berry aromas, powerful Pinot a touch blocky but rather elegant and refined given the power this shows, a lovely bright sapid red fruit nose early on the palate which is followed by light floral and slightly herbal elements adding complexity and depth. Rather blueberry toned on the backend and through the finish, which shows some woody tannin and finishes with notable licorice and vanilla ice top notes. This is modern styled and well done. 90pts

Miolo's history starts back in 1897 when Giuseppe Miolo from Italian's (Veneto) Miolo Family arrived in Brazil where today is located what we call Wine Valley in southern Brazil. As most Italians, they brought to Brazil they love for wine and found there at Wine Valley one of, if not the best terroir in Brazil. Since then they got the recognition of great wine producers, but only in the '90s, leaded by Giuseppe's grandchildren Darci, Antonio and Paulo Miolo, they begun to produce wines with the label MIOLO. The first bottle was released in 1992, a Family Reserve Merlot 1990, the grape that is very well adapted to the Valley. Besides other grapes and brands Miolo started a Quality Program in 1998 that changed the Wine industry in Brazil, investing a lot on tecnology, human resources and most important new terroirs and grapes varieties. In 2004 Miolo was present at the 5 best Brazilian terroirs, with some joint ventures and new Brands created, stabilishin the company as the biggest fine wine business in Brazilian market. Diversity and new styles of wines was the main objevtive and Miolo has more then 70 labels, from Seleção brand (Brazilian bestseller) to Lote 43 and Merlot Terroir (Brazilian iconics wines). In 2006 MIOLO WINE GROUP was born, strategics alliances and international market was the main objective of the company and Miolo has since then 8 different projects: Miolo Winery (Wine Valley) Fazenda do Seival Vineyards (Southern Brazil) Fazenda Ouro Verde (Brazilian Northeast) RAR (Southern Brazil with 1.000m elevations) Lovara (Southern Brazil) ViaSul - Costa Pacífico ( Chile ) Bodegas Osborne (Spain) Los Nevados (Mendoza Lujan de Cuyo ARG) And the last, buyed last week from Pernod Ricard, Almadén Winery (National Leader at its price range) Now, Miolo is the biggest Wine Business in Brazil (20+% of market share) and has more than 1100 hectares of vineyards selling about 12million liters/years .
