Vigna Saosent Pinot Nero 2015

The third wine of the Italian Mountain Wines tasting at DOC Enoteca Italiana and our first red wine of the evening. This is made from 100% Pinot Noir (Pinot Nero in Italian) and has spent 12 to 18 months in oak barrels plus a further minimum 6 months in the bottle.

It has the very pale ruby colour you expect of a Pinot Noir. They always look slightly watered down to me. That’s not meant as an insult in any way as I quite like this grape variety.

It has a fairly pronounced scent for a Pinot Noir and interestingly enough there’s acidity in the scent, which is unusual, along with a healthy dose of red fruits and a bit of wood/smoke.

A very clean wine, elegant. More wood than fruit in the flavour and some of the others detected caramel. It is a dry, very light wine (again that slightly watery feel) l, low tannins but some acidity and a short finish.

This is a nice enough wine but I prefer my Pinot Noir to have a bit more oomph to it than this.
