The Avisian Hills have ideal soil for growing Pinot Nero. Moreover, the northern winds that descend along the Adige valley produce strong thermal excursions that allow the primary aromas of the grapes to set and, at the same time, perfectly dry the grapes.
With a ripe garnet colour, Ritratti Pinot Nero has a particularly inviting nose with floral, fruity and earthy aromas. In the mouth it is lively and enveloping, with notes of alcohol-soaked black cherries. Its balanced flavour makes it a singular, recognisable wine.
