Castello dei Pomino Pinot Nero 2018.

The Castello dei Pomino Pinot Nero is from one of the smallest DOC regions in Italy (there is only 1 other producer!) and the quality is outstanding. This delicious red wine is superb when served with pizza, pasta and casseroles.

A Florentine family with thirty generations dedicated to the production of great wines across six Tuscan estates. The Frescobaldi style brings together tradition and innovation. With the goal of being the most prestigious Tuscan wine producer, Frescobaldi firmly believes in respecting the local land while focusing on the highest quality grapes for its wines. The Frescobaldis own over 1,000 hectares of vineyards, all located in excellent areas for the production of fine wines. Directly managed by its family members, the Frescobaldi name is deeply connected with the history of art, culture, trade, finance and wine in Italy.

Vineyard

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.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand harvested and then macerated on the skins for 23 days. Immediately after the alcoholic fermentation, the malolactic fermentation took place. The wine was then aged for 12 months in French oak barriques of varying ages, followed by a further four months in bottle prior to release.

Tasting Note

A wine of surpassing elegance, with a delicate fragrance of dark cherry and wild strawberry interwoven with floral notes of sweet violets. This is a vibrant wine, with refined, silky tannins and a smooth, complex palate of leather and toasty notes of chocolate and coffee. A flavourful and persistent finish.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with pastas with meat sauces, rich stews and casseroles.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
