Italian wine and grape guide : Pinot Nero

Pinot Nero

The Pinot Noir or Nero grape is considered one of the noblest red grape worldwide (the only possible comparison is with the Nebbiolo) and is another variety that belongs to the so called "international" grapes of French origin, but widely cultivated around the world. It is a difficult grape to grow and wine to make and is a challenge for every wine maker with variable results from vintage to vintage and area to area. The Pinot Noir is a grape variety very sensitive to the terroir, for which you get a lot of different interpretations depending on where the grapes are grown and for all these reasons, the Pinot Noir is, for consumers and professionals alike, one of the most complex wine and has created some of the greatest red wines in the world. Pinot Noir is widely used in classic method sparkling wines, from Champagne to Franciacorta, and in Italy, as a red wine, is found mainly in Trentino Alto Adige with isolated wine makers in other northern regions, from Piedmont to Friuli Venezia Giulia
