Pinot Noir

The Pinot noir is a wine that embodies more than the others elegance and complexity. It is universally considered one of the noblest red vineyards. Born in Bourgogne, it is locally found also in Italy, where the vineyard in the Alps have received a particular award, like the Pinot Noir from Alto Adige, Trentino, Brescia (with the wonderful Franciacorta) or Valle d’Aosta, Oltrepò Pavese or Friuli Venezia Giulia. Let’s proceed by order.

 

Pinot Noir: Characteristics

The Pinot Noir is a particularly difficult Vineyard both concerning the cultivation and the winemaking process. It is in fact defined by French as “Enfant Terrible”, being for the winemakers a challenge every year. The freshness of the vineyard is one of its main Characteristics, a peculiarity that, if not good managed, alters the taste balance of the wine. The Pinot Noir belongs to the family that counts more than 1000 clones. In these there are the Pinot Grigio, the Pinot Bianco or the Pinot Meunier. It has a thin peel with a blue color, that’s way it ha a light color with a middle intensity, with a color that goes from a Rubin red to a garnet red color. It changes depending on the different method of winemaking process or of ageing.

This wine is also characterized by an early maturation, by a grape with a punch form, by the which the name “pinot” comes from. The variety is used also for giving structure to the Champagne, beyond giving it a aromatic richness.

 

Pinot Noir: Pairings

A good combination of the Pinot Noir depends on where it comes from: a Pinot Noir from Trentino Alto Adige can be perfectly combined with game or cheese, while a Pinot Noir that comes from Friuli is ideal with fine dishes, white meat or fish.

In Bourgogne a traditional combination is the one made with a French dish with snails.

In general, if the Pinot Noir has no ageing in wood, it will have notes of raspberries, blueberries and cherries (with notes also of mint when it comes from cold climates). It is ideal with delicate dishes. Overwise, when it makes the ageing or the winemaking process in wood, it will be more complex and will be ideal with structured dishes.
