Why we love it
This red DOC wine made with 100% Pinot Nero grapes has a ruby red colour.
On the nose, it is very elegant as well as clear. In the mouth, the flavour is wide; the balance is well balanced between sweet and vanilla wood hints.
Serving temperature: 18°C.
Food pairings: Red meat and cheese courses.
The artisan who made it
The Icardi winery, located in Piedmont, is run by brother and sister Claudio and Mariagrazia,they have taken over from their father, who founded the winery. Claudio is an oenologist and a firm believer in organic methods and as such, some of their vineyards are grown following biodynamic techniques. Mariagrazia, on the other hand, works in the winery and travels around the world to promote their wines and have vineyards in some of the best area of Piedmont, from Barolo to Barbaresco, from Asti, to Alba, including a small vineyard of Pinot Nero.
