Castel Firmian, 100% Pinot Nero – Mezzacorona (75cl) DOC Trentino
£14.50 Inc. VAT
Grape: 100% Pinot Nero
Producer: Mezzacorona is a driving force behind the quality of Trentino wines with
a state-of-the-art winery handling estate-grown fruit from the company’s
extensive vineyard holdings in the heart of the Dolomites. The fifteenthcentury
Castel Firmian overlooks the Rotaliano plain in Trentino, and
the wines named after it also give an overview of the region, with both
international and local varieties on offer, all crisp and expressive.
Vineyard: Each variety used for Castel Firmian is planted on sites with a particular
affinity to it – in this case the hillside areas of Faedo and Pressano – and
a mixture of traditional pergola and modern espalier training systems are
Winery: The wine was traditionally fermented, with a 4-5 day maceration,
temperature control at 25ºC, and 6-8 months’ ageing in oak barrels.
Taste: An expressive and delicious Pinot Noir, showing typical characters of
strawberry and red cherry, with some floral complexity. The palate is quite
light in body, with vibrant fruit balanced by a silky mouthfeel.
