Pinot Noir Cargasacchi Vyd 2012
WINE OVERVIEW

One of the more fruit-driven, pure and elegant Pinot Noirs in the Samsara lineup. Balanced and textured with both freshness and richness.

Tasting Notes

Ripe red and dark berries, candled rose, and allspace on the nose. Plush, pliant, and gently sweet with black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors. Weighty, creamy, and lively with a long, round, spicy finish.

Food Pairing

Stuffed eggplant with pinenuts and currants, Fennel and garlic-crusted pork loin roast, nutty aged cheeses

High in free lime and calcium, it’s perfectly suited for Pinot Noir with moderate water holding capacity and excellent drainage. 75% whole-cluster fermentation and pressed with an ultra-gentle stainless steel basket press in an 8-hour cycle. Fermented in small lots (2 tons) with native yeast only. Year-round barrel maturation at 55 degrees. No fining, no filtering, and two racking and two SO2 addition prior to bottling. Aged 22 months in 50% new French oak and 12 months in bottle.
