The 2016 'La Pineta' is a seductive style of Pinot Nero, which was aged 12 months in French oak followed by an additional 5 months in bottle. It opens to inviting aromas dark cherries and fresh blackberries, which are joined together by spices, toast, pine and a touch of fresh mineral nuances. This possesses a medium-full body with lovely polished tannins which expand through the palate. It displays a notable balance of ripe dark fruits and acidity leading up to the juicy finish. This modern style Pinot Nero from Alessandro Cella is undeniably delicious.
