WOW! I had no idea Italian Pinot Noir could have such finesse until this gem from Lombardy. Raised on a fine rambling shooting estate, this is the oldest planting of Pinot Noir in the country, names for a game bird, the pernice, or partridge. This isn't a playful light pinot, rather a wine of social status and depth, at once pretty and deep. It's drinking very well now, or will age well if you can restrain yourself. Perfect with game birds, as you may imagine.
