Pinot Nero Riserva 'Praepositus' Abbazia di Novacella 2018

The Pinot Noir Reserve "Praepositus" from the ancient winery Abbazia di Novacella in Alto Adige is a red wine that surprises with its elegance and sinuosity. The grapes of the homonymous variety are vinified in purity and matured for 24 months in French barriques and tonneaux. Only after a 12-month rest in the bottle are they ready to be tasted. The ruby red colour tinged with pink introduces a rich and intense olfactory picture with scents of underbrush and sweet spices. The taste is sumptuous, decisive and envelops the palate in a silky mantle
