Fasoli Gino Pinot Nero IGT 'Sande'

Fasoli Gino started making their award winning Pinot Nero Sande at the end of the 1980s. The low yield of the vineyard was due to the pruning system and gave grapes that were unbelievably concentrated in sugar and aromas. The drying process further developed the aromas of the grapes allowing the producer to create a wine that is unique in its category.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The wine is an intense ruby red and the bouquet has intense aromas of dried grapes. The spicy notes blend harmoniously with the aromas of ripe red fruits. The tannins are fine and persistent and balance the high acidity. The wine has a long aftertaste.
Production Notes
The grapes are left to ferment in conical oak casks with manual pressing down of the marcs for 15 days. After being racked on, the wine is left to age in barriques for 36 – 48 months depending on the weather conditions.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes are harvested by hand between the last few days of August and the beginning of September. They are they laid to dry in special containers.
Food Pairing Notes
Ideal with stewed meat or rich pasta sauces, Sande also pairs well with mature cheeses.
