2019 Rosapasso Pinot Nero, Biscardo

2019 Rosapasso Pinot Nero, Biscardo
ref. BISC190

Wine Variety: Pinot Nero is simply the Italian for Pinot Noir. The Pinot family has been documented for many centuries, over which time a great deal of clonal diversity has developed. The many different clones were regarded as separate varieties, but it has now been found that black-, pink-, white-berried clones and all others share the same genetic code and, indeed, one can find Pinot vines bearing fruits of differing colours. The origins of Pinot are so distant as to be unclear, but it is thought to be closely related to a vine that was domesticated directly from the wild. What is certain is that Pinot is one of the European "mother" varieties and from it, Savagnin and Gouais Blanc many of our modern varieties had their origins.

Wine Region: The Veneto lies around the city of Venice and stretches up to the Austrian border, west to Lake Garda. Some pretty dodgy soils have been permitted DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) status: low-lying arable fields used for cereal production before the war. Thus there is a great deal of average wine produced here that qualifies for rather grander status than it deserves. However, the wines of Valpolicella and Soave - where the vineyards are planted on the right slopes - can offer real interest.

Wine Producer: This is an old firm, started by a Veronese family in the late 19th century to compliment their textile business. Biscardo have been exporting wine to the UK since the 1930s.

wine tasting notesTasting Notes:

It's a pale salmon pink in the glass and the nose has good presence in its spiced red fruit aromas. Very red; very cherry. Smells summery and welcoming. The palate offers super fruit concentration underpinned by zesty, juicy acidity. It's a long thing, too, taking on increasing freshness and a hint of something saline later on. This is one more-ish glass of pink wine.
