TASTING NOTES

Born of a desire to enhance as much as possible the aromatic characteristics of the variety. Not only is this 100% Brachetto wine extremely elegant, but its aromas are of an outstanding finesse, complementing perfectly the wine’s inherent structure. Purple in colour, tending towards cherry. The nose is initially extremely delicate, almost shy, and then explodes with withered rose and lychee aromas that are immediately followed by a range of aromas typical of the variety, with a faint musky note. The natural sweetness of the fruit holds its own against the residual sugars and alcohol, which is exceptionally low. A noticeable acidity in the mouth provides a pleasant contrast to the sugars, making the wine a good cellaring prospect and opening up a whole host of possible food pairings. The wine’s lively acidity is suitably mitigated and highlighted by the alcohol and glycerine content, which make it soave and light in the mouth. Exceptionally wellbalanced and outstandingly harmonious in the mouth, with a lingeri g finish. An unusual wine that seems to be almost shy in stepping outside the square, but which boldly expresses the beguiling characteristics of a variety that is still rather misunderstood and not always presented to advantage.

The Inimitable Vineyard
Vela wine Pinot nero of Loazzolo

11,000 vines per hectare: the pinot nero grown with this exceptional vine density was planted in 2007 (in France and Italy, vineyards are already considered intensive from 4,500 vines per hectare). Such density forces the vines to reduce their foliage and concentrate their essences into the grapes.
