Red wine from Pavia District IGT (Typical Geographic Indication).
“Al Negres” is produced by a vineyard, whose grapes are Pinot Noir, located in San Damiano al Colle. The vineyard is on the hills exposed to the sun at an altitude that goes from 250 to 300 meters on the level of the sea.
It is produced only in good harvest.
Once pressed, the grapes are made fermented on the peels for about 15 days.
The wine is ripened in French oak tonneaux for 12 months, in order to stabilize it naturally, without the use of clarifiers, and it rests in bottle for a minimum of 10 months.
It’s garnet-red colored, to sense of smell it’s strong, with hints of red fruits, like marasca and ribes. The wine is balanced, hot, with a good structure and persistence.
