Pinot Nero Oltrepò Pavese DOC

Red wine from Lombardy

Alcohol: 13,00%
Grape: Pinot Noir
Production: 30,000 bottles


Luca Maroni 90

Costa del Nero means “the black’s summit of a hill” referring to the part of estate usually regarded as the best for vineyards. Cascina Nero is the second most suitable ground for Pinot Nero in the heart of Rocca de’ Giorgi. The vineyard is spread on 6 hectares exclusively for Pinot Nero, facing south at an altitude of about 300 meters.

The soil is mostly calcareous (51%), clayey (33%), sandy (12%) and stony (4%). The average yield doesn’t exceed 60 q. of grape per hectare.

Costa del Nero is made using a temperature-controlled stainless-steel fermentation process. Then a part of the wine refined in oak and the rest stay in tank waiting for final blending. The result is a modern, smooth Pinot Nero, loyal with wine lovers expectations but surprising for casual elegance.

Conte Vistarino

Carlo Giorgi di Vistarino introduced the pinot nero grape to the Oltrepo Pavese between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, going on to win awards in both London and Paris for the sparkling wines thus produced. His work was taken further by Ottaviano and Carlo, and is today in the hands of Ottavia Giorgi di Vistarino.
