An evening of fine English Wine!

Quaff Hove, Thursday 20th June, 7.30pm

Avamposti Pinot Nero

The grapes were cultivated in one vineyard plot with chalk soils, 350m above sea level in the Monferrato hills. After experimenting with earlier vintages to find the best vinification method for Piemontese Pinot Noir Carlo decided to combine the results of two parcels – 50% underwent fermentation in stainless steel with a portion (20%) of whole bunches – whilst the grapes for the remaining 50% were crushed and fermented in large wooden casks. Malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel. After blending the wine spent 12 months in oak – 75% large cask and 25% barriques – before bottling.

Country: Italy

Product Type: Wine

Wine Colour: Red

Grape: Pinot Noir

Volume: 75cl

Producer Profile

Il Cascinone was acquired by leading Piemonte producer Araldica in 1999 – an exceptional estate in the Monferrato hills which has undergone extensive restoration and replanting. Now around 70ha of the total 102ha are in full production, with the warmer, southwest-facing slopes used to grow Barbera, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon – whilst the northeast slopes are ideal for more aromatic varieties Brachetto and Moscato, along with Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
