In Vineyard

100% Pinot Nero grapes grown from our own vineyards in Pramaggiore.  The vineyard is situated 25 – 40 metres above sea level with medium texture and clayey soil.  Sylvoz is the growing method used. Pinot Nero is the Italian synonym for the great Pinot Noir varietal.

In Cellar

Red vinification of Pinot Noir grapes.  Fermentation takes place on the skins in steel vats for 8-10 days at a controlled temperature of 24-26 °C, on carefully selected yeasts.  After racking off the wine is held in steel vats until bottling.

In Tasting

The young wine is deep red, which tends to garnet with age.  The definitely typical, delicate scent is reminiscent of raspberries and mixed berries.  The flavour is dry and slightly aromatic, with pleasantly balanced acidity and elegant tannins.

Pairings

Traditionally served with white or red meat and hard cheeses. The delicacy of the young wine makes it excellent with certain fish dishes.

Pinot Nero – The Italian synonym for the great Pinot Noir varietal. The Nero grape is considered one of the noblest red grape worldwide and is another variety that belongs to the so called “international” grapes of French origin, but widely cultivated around the world. Pinot Nero is usually light and fruity.
IGT – Indicazione geografica tipica is the third of four classifications of wine recognized by the government of Italy.
Ai Galli – The farm Azienda Agricola Ai Galli was built about the seventies and now is set in nearly 50 hectares of vineyards, which are all situated in the D.O.C. (controlled designation of origin) Lison-Pramaggiore production area. The production of a wide range of good wines has been more and more appreciated by wine connoisseurs. The awards won in the last years are not final achievements for the company, but a confirmation that the undertaken way is the right one.
Veneto – is a substantial and increasingly important wine region in the northeastern corner of Italy. Veneto is slightly smaller than Italy’s other main wine-producing regions – Piedmont, Tuscany, Lombardy, Puglia and Sicily – yet it generates more wine than any of them. Today more than 25 percent of the region’s wine is made and sold under DOC/DOCG titles.
