Impero Blanc de Pinot Noir, Fattoria Mancini, Marche, Italy 2020
Regular price £41.45
The Mancini family have made wine here for five generations, and current owner Luigi Mancini’s fascination is with more unusual grape varieties: either the Pinot Noir brought to this particular part of the northern Marches by the French two hundred years ago, or local treasures like Ancellotta and Albanella. In clay-limestone soil, with temperatures moderated by the Adriatic, these varieties thrive alongside the more mainstream Sangiovese and Montepulciano.
Impero Blanc de Pinot Noir 2020
100% Pinot Noir. An impressive and distinctive wine, showing spice from the wood and bright red apple/peach aromas. Broad structure in the mouth, not unlike a Côte-de-Nuits white – balanced and positive, with a herbal freshness.
