Tasting Characteristics:
Meticulous care in the vineyard and a gentle touch in the winery resulted in ALPHA’s PINOT NOIR. A wine of great intensity, balance and structure. Depth and concentration balanced by the fresh acidity and minerality that are typical of the site. Influenced by new oak, their subdued, alluring aromas, characterized from wild cherries aromas, with hints of spiced black plums, raspberries and cocoa seduce the educated palate, as does the vibrant acidity.

Harmony:
Well paired with all white meats, from chicken to turkey and hare, grilled or cooked in fine sauces. Pork fillet and feathered game.

Best served at 16-18ο C. (60,8-64,4 ο F).
