Drink it now or cellar for up to 15 years. No need to decant it but best to open it half an hour before service.

Sancaba Pinot Nero is a creation of Andrea Franchetti, a charismatic and visionary wine producer, owner of the Trinoro estate in Val d’Orcia, and of the Passopisciaro estate on Etna in addition to the Sancaba farm. The Sancaba area is characterized by wild nature, still occupied by large wooded areas and by pedoclimatic characteristics, which make it very suitable for hosting the vineyards of the great Burgundy grape.

The Pinot Noir vines are between 5 and 11 years old and are located at an altitude of 650 meters above sea level. The climate is particularly cool, with constant winds blowing from the northeast and significant temperature variations between day and night. The soils are composed of calcareous-clayey marl, mixed with friable stones of a schistose nature, very suitable for viticulture aimed at low yields per hectare. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and large barrels. The wine ages for 6 months in second passage barrels and completes the refinement with 14 months in concrete tanks.

In the glass, it presents a beautiful bright ruby red color. On the nose, the wine offers aromas of red currant, raspberry, cherry, wild strawberries, floral nuances, and delicate spicy hints. It is an elegant wine, with finely faceted aromas and a velvety tannic structure. The finish is fresh, long, and persistent. Have it with duck or game birds.
