“This is a phenomenal wine with a purity of Pinot Noir and richness that is hard to find in Tuscany. It’s just pure fruit. Full and tannic yet fresh and bright. Goes on for minutes. Speechless. One of the best Pinot Noir in Italy” Tuscan tasting note. By James Suckling 91 Points
The proximity of a Mediterranean wild forest, the altitude, and southern exposure give Baracchi’s Pinot Nero characteristics quinessential of the region. Baracchi’s Pinot Nero has a bright ruby color with crisp transparency.
The bouquet is harmoniously balanced with the delicate scent of flowers and red fruit. On the palate it is defined by the combination of dark berries, pleasantly bright, youthful cherries, ripe strawberries, and a slight hint of spiciness. This Pinot Nero has an elegant texture with lively tannins, and a divine finish.
