BRICCO DEL FALCO - PIEMONTE DOC PINOT NERO
THE TERROIR INFLUENCE ON WINE:
Loazzolo is located in a microclimate whose conditions are particularly favorable for growing Pinot Nero. The altitude, sun exposure (specifically fresher verses east and west), the temperature range, the poor soil and calcium all ever changing due to the vintage and climate conditions, are all conditions that help to enrich Pinot Nero, forcing us to constantly seek out the right equilibrium between acidity and tannins, and slowing the maturation to bring forth it's natural perfumes.
