Podere Monastero Pineta 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Pinot noir is associated with the US west coast--Oregon's Willamette Valley, for example, and, of course, Burgundy. But, there are some up-to-date Italian vintners who make very good ones. Here's one."The 2010 La Pineta (pinot noir) is gorgeous in this vintage. This is a decidedly New World-inspired expression of Pinot, yet there is an unmistakable sense of Tuscan acidity that gives the wine its backbone. Dark red cherries, plums, sweet spices and licorice are all woven together in this supple, juicy pinot noir. The wine turns a bit more subtle and understated on the finish."Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
