Pinot Noir variety
This variety is considered as the French brother of our Nebbiolo. Now spread internationally, it gives very different results depending on the type of soil where it is cultivated. It is vinified both red and white and it is also used as a base for sparkling wines.
The other side of Alta Langa D.O.C.G.
Along with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir is the other grape used to produce Alta Langa D.O.C.G. It is aninternational variety, planted in the Langhe hills to meet that desire to produce a sparkling wine in Piedmont, worthy cousin of the French Champagne.
Vinified white according to the Champenoise Method, the Pinot Noir grapes arrive to San Silvestro from a vineyard located in Monastero Bormida, and together with the chardonnay grapes from Vesime, they give birth to our Alta Langa D.O.C.G.
