Pinot Noir, Latuffa 2012
WINE OVERVIEW

Elegant and compex Pinot from Chile’s cool-climate, southern valley of Malleco with volcanic soils.

Tasting Notes

A gentle ruby red color wine. The aroma displays elegance and typicity on the nose with floral notes, such as violets and red fruit, that recall strawberries and rosehips. Subtle notes of vanilla and roasted nuts enhance the wine’s complexity. The palate confirms its excellent flavor typicity with a generous, ample opening framed by fine tannins and a refreshing acidity that prolongs the flavors to produce a long, smooth and elegant finish.

Food Pairing

Try with eggplant, smoky glazed ham, or grilled vegetable rigatoni.

Tech Details

Harvested by hand and fermented in stainless steel tanks, the Latuffa Pinot Noir comes from our Traiguen Vineyard, located in Malleco D.O., the southernmost and coldest wine appellation in Chile. The climate is cold and cloudy, with lots of rainfall every year. We farm without irrigation on volcanic soils full of minerals and pebbles. This 15-year-old block is less than an acre.
