Notes of dried fruit and jam. On the palate, it is soft and fresh. Adapted to every combination, ideal with introductory dishes, fish, white meats and cheeses.
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast, 'Made with organically farmed Pinot Nero, this vibrant wine delivers pure strawberry, cherry and cake spice flavors backed up by mineral and a hint of pastry. It’s framed in an elegant, lively perlage while fresh acidity provides impeccable balance and a crisp finish. Delicious!' Kerin O'Keefe, December 2015 (2011 vintage)
91 Points - Tom Cannavan, '100% Pinot, an assemblage with 25% of red wine, made in stainless steel and barrique. Very bold, pomegranate colour, lovely hint of bread character against dry redcurrant and berries, and a delicate smokiness. Lovely palate, with such beautiful rose hip and cranberry, a hint of strawberry, and such a long, harmonious flavour.' Tom Cannavan's Wine Pages, April 2014 (2010 vintage)
The Pizzini family arrived in Franciacorta in the 1870s. Since then, the estates have passed through many generations of the same family, until in the 1990s a group of local wine entrepreneurs, bought the estate and started to invest in the business putting people, and the environment first. Organic techniques followed and soon they expanded their horizons by investing and buying new properties in the Maremma Toscana area and in the Marche, Castelli di Jesi. With a full range of wines from three important wine regions of Italy, Barone Pizzini are a dynamic, quality driven group whose wines are enjoying increasing recognition. We are very pleased to be working with more of their wines in the UK this year.
