Renoir Pinot Noir Piemonte DOC 2013

Cascina Lo Zoccolaio is dedicated to tradition. The grapes are treated with love and respect at every single phase of production from the vineyards to the cellar. Lo Zoccolaio goes by the following guidelines: no use of herbicides, the use of legumes as fertilizers, and always having respect for the rhythms of nature. The harvest is carried out rigorously by hand selecting only the best grapes.

About the Vineyard

This wine comes from estate owned vineyards located in Novello and Barolo, and made of 100% Pinot Noir. Grapes are hand harvested and carefully selected. Low yields and long aging make this wine of the highest quality.

Wine Production

After the harvest, destalking, and soft pressing, each varietal is fermented separately. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is blended and aged in french barriques for 18 months, then bottled. Everything is done with respect for tradition, and with the most modern methodologies and tools.

Tasting Notes

The Pinot Noir, is rich with perfumes, and well balanced between red fruits, and notes of spice. Intense and full on the palate, this is a wine of great satisfaction and persistence.

Food Pairing

This wine is very versitile, and can be served with with duck dishes and other game birds.
