The Pinot Nero grape variety, originating from Burgundy, flourishes best in territories characterized by sharp fluctuations in temperature during the grape ripening period. The Valle di Cembra climate with its characteristically chilly currents rising up off the nearby alpine mountain chains favors and enhances the typical aromas of this grape variety.
Cembra Pinot Nero, of a ruby-red colour, has a delicate aroma evoking forest fruits and cherry. On the palate it is soft, with a full, pleasant sapid sensation which emphasizes its persistency.
