The Pinot Noir grape is considered one of the noblest among the red grape varieties worldwide.
It is a difficult grape variety both in cultivation and wine-making. The red vinification of Pinot noir is an important challenge for any winemaker and leads to variable results from vintage to vintage even in areas most suited to it. It ‘also a very sensitive grape variety to the terroir, for which you get a lot of different interpretations depending on the production area. Pinot Noir is one of the oldest grapes (2000 years old )of which we have historical information and its land of origin is most likely Burgundy.
In Italy we find it is vinified in red, especially in Trentino South-Tyrol, in the Oltrepò Pavese, in Veneto, Friuli, and at least in one case in Tuscany. Vinified in white, it belongs to the composition of a sparkling classical method, from Franciacorta, to Trento DOC.
