    Pignolo

    The Pignolo grape has been known since the 12th century and, like all Friulian varieties, has risked extinction. For us, it is a uniquely characterful wine that unveils its deeply satisfying allure after the long, patient maturation necessary to bring out its charm and elegance.

    Appearance: intense ruby red shading into purple. Nose: full, pervasive and fruit-led with notes of morello cherry, plums, black pepper and lashings of delicious espresso coffee. Palate: dry and full-bodied with a swath of harmonious forest fruits preserves, truffle and aromatic spice fragrances, signing off with a note of tar.
