2016 Russolo Grifo Nero Pinot Nero Riserve • 0.75 Ltr. • Rosso
picture of

A wine of not overly deep a red, which in some years is considered as not very intense. Delicate, fruity and complex aroma that evolves after aging in barrels, with hints of goudron and vanilla. A wine with excellent structure, velvety and soft.

A wine that blends best with white and red meats. Combining with fresh cheeses always brings great satisfaction. It holds well after several years of aging.
