Pomino DOC is the only Pinot Nero DOC wine made in Tuscany. The vineyard is located at Castello di Pomino, located in the Apennine Mountains to the east of Florence set in a charming landscape of chestnut and fir trees. The vineyards, placed at the highest altitudes in Tuscany at 737 metres above sea level, enjoy a fresh and well ventilated microclimate. In 1855 grape varieties that were unusual at the time were introduced - such as Pinot Nero. After 150 years, this variety has found its ideal habitat and produces wine of extraordinary finesse, elegance and minerality.
The grapes were hand-harvested and then macerated on the skins for 23 days. Immediately after alcoholic fermentation was complete, malolactic fermentation took place resulting in a softer more opulent texture. The wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barriques of varying ages, followed by a further four months in bottle, prior to release.
