Waiting for the weekend, I tried a good Pinot Noir. This time, we’re in Südtirol, in northern Italy, where it’s produced the Rollhütt of Peter Zemmer.
The Rollhütt is quite interesting, with an elegant character and a medium body. It is a wine that ages in a elegant and traditional way, not being aged exclusively in small French oak barrels (barriques): the 70% of the Pinot Noir is aged in big French oak barrels for 12 months and the remaining 30% of the Pinot Noir is aged in small French barriques.
I tried the 2013 Rollhütt.
At the nose, aromas of blueberries, red currants, cherries in brandy and a light note of white pepper.
On the palate, this Pinot Noir is elegant, quite tannic, rounded and fresh.
I recommend it in pairing with the chicken cooked in the oven and other kind of white meat, red meat, preferably not grilled, and medium aged cheese.
Have a nice weekend!
