Pinot Nero Oltrepò Pavese Pernice 2019
100% Pinot Nero
A balanced red, with a rich note of fresh, loamy earth underscored the soft black cherry and dried cranberry fruit. It’s light- to medium-bodied and well-knit, with fine tannins, and accents of dried flowers and thyme, anise and graphite lingering on the lightly chewy finish. Drink now through 2026.
