Alené Pinot Nero dell'Oltrepò Pavese DOC
Pinot Nero, deemed to be one of the world's most refined wines, finds a perfect home in the Oltrepò Pavese, the second largest producer of this wine variety after Burgundy. Our vineyards are situated in Montalto Pavese, one of the most important wine regions of the Oltrepò Pavese, at an altitude of 400 metres. Here, the technological ripening process and polyphenol substances develop side by side up until the moment of harvest, creating a perfect balance between volume and body.
Fermentation lasts around 10-14 days. Temperatures gradually increase as the sugar dissolves and the daily pumping of the wine over the cap takes place in progressively shorter sessions in order to extract the finest tannins.
