In 1991, after 30 years of ownership, the Zorzettig family installed a state-of-the-art winery and replaced many of their vines with classic, international varieties. Their Pinot Noir has juicy, crushed raspberry flavours, with delicate warm spice and shows off the characteristic 'Friulian' weight and elegance.
"Smooth and spicy Pinot Nero from a family-owned estate in the far north-east of Italy. Crushed red berries on the nose, with a supple, juicy palate."
It is hard to imagine a more exciting or varied wine-producing country than Italy. With a vibrant winemaking history spanning over 2,000 years, and vineyards stretching from the Alps through the Appenine mountains to Sicily, the Italian peninsula is home to an enormous range of climates, topographies and soil typeshosting hundreds of distinctive grapes unique to Italy.
