Bright ruby in colour with good depth at the core, this Pinot Noir is aromatic and delicate, with perfumes of rose petals and ripe strawberries given a touch of spice by the oak ageing.
On the palate it is structured and elegant, with a savoury-spiced red fruit character and a long, perfumed finish.
The Pinot Noir grapes for this wine are grown on Bricco di Vergne, the highest vineyard on the hill which rises through the village of Barolo therefore unsuitable for Nebbiolo. Vajra has created this Piemontese tribute to one of his favourite grape varieties, Pinot Noir, which he feels is a point of reference for many producers...

'Mount Horrocks - Cordon Cut Clare Valley Riesling 2015 12x 37.5cl Half Bottles Deal' priced at £214.84 => Click for Deal
The wine is a vivid and intense ruby red in colour with a grapey and fruity (plum and cherry) aroma. Grapes grown on light and loose-textured soils and modern oenological techniques which enable producers to obtain and conserve fruit and freshness combine to make this a wine which is very pleasurable in its youth. For this reason it goes well with simple dishes such as hors d'oeuvres, soups, risotto, and pasta.
