Pinot Noir Riserva "Monticol" Cantina Terlano 2015
It is their individual terroir that make the wines of Terlano so remarkable. Each wine is produced from grapes grown on tiny plots of land owned by the many growers that make up the cooperative of Cantina Terlano. The production zone for this alluring Pinot Noir in the tiny Hamlet of Monticol begins at 500 meters and climbs to more than 700 meters ASL Here the easy draining heat retentive soil and the warm days and cool nights provide ideal conditions to produce the demanding Pinot Nero grape. Monticol is aged 12 months in large oak casks (50%) and small barriques (50%). The result is an elegant, harmonious medium-bodied wine with velvety dark fruits and a memorable finish. It pairs perfectly with barbecue, grilled shrimp, salmon, swordfish and tuna.
