Pinot Nero (2015)

Gori

  • Pinot Nero has been grown in Friuli for only a very short while, making it still a very rare fine, but this corner of Italy is actually perfect for this grape. In the pre-alpine hills it finds its best habitat , caressed by the fresh winds coming from the mountains, where it fully exploits the typical thermal excursion of the area due to the soil.
