Pinot Noir Riserva South tyrol
A.A. Pinot Nero Riserva "Zeno"
Pinot Nero and the Cantina Merano Winery is an alliance that could not be more harmonious. The very best top-quality French clones of this noble red grape flourish high above Merano, at over 500 metres above sea level, in selected, well-ventilated sites that are exposed to the sun. The combined force of the sun and the cool downslope winds of the high mountain summits means that especially complex and fruity red wines can be produced. Partial whole-cluster pressing and storage in oak barrels of the carefully selected, small-berried grapes gives the King of Red Wines a final polish and creates a durable Riserva with well-integrated acidity and a long-lasting finish.

The colour is a vivid ruby red. Fresh and fruity on the nose, reminiscent of wild berries as strawberries and wild cherries. Elegant on the palate, well-bodied, with noticeable tannins, fine and long finish.
