Dalzocchio Pinot Nero 2015


In Stock

“The 2015 Pinot Nero from Elisabetta Dalzocchio is absolutely stunning, reminding me of some of the more adventurous and experimental Pinots coming out of Oregon these days. Elisabetta only grows Pinot Nero and follows a strictly natural approach from start to finish to create this small 760-case production. Perfectly ripe strawberry, including the vines, leaves, and even the moist dark earth you’d expect at your feet, waft up to create a beautiful bouquet. It’s ripe and enveloping, offset by savory herbal and mineral tones, as zesty acids add further energy and depth of fruit. A note of cherry-pit creates a sweet and sour effect on the close, with just a hint of fine tannin that frames the experience perfectly. Did I mention it’s only 12.5% abv.? What a fun wine, and it’s loaded with character. Drinking window: 2020-2026. 92 points”
