Pinot Nero Monferrato DOC LA SCOLCA
Awards and honors
It is produced with grapes cultivated under the supervision of some professors of the University of Bordeaux. It ages in our cellar for two years in tonneaux made of French oak. It develops delicate aromas that create an important wine, smooth, with a wide bouquet and a taste with great persistence, spicy, fruity and enriched by cherry hints. This wine is produced with 100% Pinot Noir grapes coming from the vineyards located in the area of Gavi. The traditional red wine making technique requires a first aging in barriques and a further evolution in the bottle. It is suitable for long maturation periods if we preserve the bottle horizontally in a dark space without strong thermal excursions.
