Pomino Pinot Nero

Frescobaldi Castello di Pomino Pinot Nero Tuscan red wine - Pinot Noir and Sangiovese Italian wines

Frescobaldi Pomino Pinot Nero is a wine of surpassing elegance. Delicate fragrances of dark cherry and wild strawberry meld together with floral notes of sweet violets. This is a lovely blend of Pinot Noir and a touch of Sangiovese.

Tasting Notes
This wine appears a deep ruby red, with impressive luminosity. The bouquet is richly complex and stylish, with initial impressions of dark wild berry fruit, including blackberry and blueberry, as well as dried plum and dark cherry. Subtly pungent notes of mint and nutmeg gradually claim attention, and the aromatic array concludes with tobacco leaf and baker?s chocolate. The palate elegantly mirrors the aromatics enjoyed on the nose, then develops a suite of silk-smooth tannins. A crisp progression leads into a long-lingering, ultra-savoury finish, completing a wine that is refined, rounded, and fully balanced.
