Tasting Notes

Young, fragrant and expressive Pinot Noir with notes of light cherry, raspberry and light smoky minerals.  Elegant and polished tannins, leave the long flavors of  red raspberry, perhaps small red plums, and a touch of white pepper and cloves.

It connects with serenity and it is easy to drink, emanating wild berries aromas and red fruits.

Pernero is a lovely aperitif, to be served with starters and many cheeses. Excellent accompaniment to risottos, roasted duck, rich dishes with sauces.

Also enjoyable a bit fresh with fish soups, and other seafood dishes.  Serve to accompany Vegetarian dishes such as roasted vegetables and herbs.
