Grape: 100% Pinot Nero
Vinification: Traditional temperature controlled fermentation for about 10 days in stainless steel tanks. Afterwards, malolactic fermentation and storage partially in large wooden barrels (22hl) of French oak and/or stainless steel tanks.
Tasting notes: Our Pinot Nero Elena Walch shines in clear, fresh ruby red. A fruity play of aromas of red berries, cherries and raspberries as well as spicy notes with some white pepper characterizes the bouquet. In the mouth, the wine convinces with juicy structure and inviting freshness, with soft, velvety tannins, discreet spices in the background and a youthful, elegant finish.
Medium ruby colour with a garnet shimmer. Clean, uplifted somewhat earthy varietal aroma: notes of red fruit, cherries and some spiciness. Fruity, mild flavour, medium bodied. Fresh finish with good length. Elegant style.
Our Pinot Nero is produced entirely grapes produced French clones. The fermentation is spontaneous in open wooden vats, while malolactic fermentation takes place in barriques. The wine is then refined for twelve months in French durmast oak casks.
The intensive scent of red and dark berries as well as violets is typical of our vineyards in Montan. The Blauburgunder the Unterland region comes astonishingly close to some of the "model" wines Burgundy. This red wine develops harmoniously, with a full body and lasting finish. In the glass it gleams with a beautiful dark to ruby red.
