Tiefenbrunner Turmhof Blauburgunder 2019

Looking out from the Turmhof Castle at the cascading fields of vineyards, one sees acres upon acres of white grapes. From these many vineyards come only a handful of reds. This Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) is harvested and vinified with care before being aged in both barriques and barrels.

Wine Production

Fermentation on the skins in stainless steel tanks is followed by malolactic fermentation, then the wine ages for another eight months in large wooden casks and small wooden barrels.

Tasting Notes

Ruby red in color with garnet tones, this wine has delicate aromas of raspberries, red cherries, strawberries, and violets. On the palate, the wine is elegant and smooth with delicious red berry flavors balanced with crisp acidity and a soft, round finish.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with pasta dishes, marinara sauces, chicken marsala, and paella.
