Pinot Noir


Piedmont is more readily associated with the Nebbiolo and Barbera grapes than Pinot Noir, however Avamposti have some lovely Pinot vines in the Monferrato hills, and have produced a wine with Pinot noir characteristic with a bit of Piedmontese structure. They are not aiming to make Chambolle Musigny but rather show the perfume and bright fruit of the local Pinot noir grape. 50% underwent fermentation in stainless steel with a portion (20%) of whole bunches – whilst the grapes for the remaining 50% were crushed and ferrmented in large wooden casks, then the wine spent 12 months in oak. Medium bodied with juicy raspberry fruit, and lightly savoury.
