Tuscan Pinot noir. In the highest vineyards of Casa di Sala Estate in Panzano in Chianti, Ambrogio
and Giovanni Folonari have been growing Pinot Nero grapes since the mid-1980s. Here Black was born, in a pedo- climatic environment particularly suited to the cultivation of this vine in name of the Chianti area.
Tasting: The 2019 vintage reveals aromas of currant, quince, pomegranate and aromatic nuances developed through the aging in our precious wooden barrels. Full-bodied and intense on the palate, this wine is characterised by a great sensory impact as a result of the perfect balance between tannins and acidity. Balsamic notes and a perfectly dry, long finish.
Pairing: excellent if paired with haute cuisine special dishes or it can simply be enjoyed with friends.
First vintage: 2006
Shelf life: Up to 10 years
Curiosity: Black is the result of a great dream of Ambrogio Folonari after his many trips to Burgundy
