Our Reserve, only produced in the best years, bears a name of Latin derivation referring to Roman antiquity when the interest of the Empire in the fineness of the grapes from Bubbio had already been noted. It represents the maximum expression of quality that can be obtained with our grapes: it is a very structured wine, with fine, smooth tannin, enveloping and elegant.

Good structure and persistence predict a fascinating evolution of the wine. Brilliant ruby red tending to garnet reflections upon ageing. Hints of enticing mature small wild red berry fruits like cherry, bitter cherry, oral notes of rose hips and spices upon opening like vanilla and intense liquorice.

This Pinot Nero, with its long ageing, conceals a balanced minerality and a delicate final freshness. Produced by Colombo, Piedmont.
