  4. Pinot Nero Alto Adige DOC

Tramin discovered early on that the finicky Pinot Nero really prospered in the cool-moderate microclimate of the southern Alto Adige region. Made entirely from Pinot Nero (elsewhere known as Pinot Noir), which is perfected in a combination of stainless steel, barriques and large casks, this wine is illustrative of why Tramin continues to be ranked as “Tre Bicchieri” (3-stars) by Gambero Rosso.

Tasting Notes

Ruby-red in color, this wine offers concentrated aromas of woodland berry fruits. On the palate, the wine boasts a firm backbone of tannin and an elegant body with impressive length.

Food Pairing

Pairs brilliantly with cured ham, smoked sausage or grilled pork tenderloin.
