The Avisiane Hills offer the ideal substrate for Pinot Nero. In addition to drying the grapes perfectly, the northern winds that descend along the Adige Valley produce strong variations in temperature that allow the grapes to develop their main aromas.
With a deep garnet colour, Pinot Nero Ritratti is particularly pleasant on the nose with floral, fruity and earthy notes. It is lively and enveloping on the palate, with hints of alcohol-soaked black cherries. Its balanced flavour makes it a unique, recognisable wine.
