Pinot Noir is considered one of the noblest of the red grape varieties in the world. It’s the quintessence of elegance and finesse. It is delicate, fragrant, and ethereal, with fruity notes of red berries, hazelnuts, tea, light spices, musk, mushrooms, lacquer, currant, pine resin, and orange peel.
The color is ruby when young, but tends to garnet as it ages, developing into a transparent and delicate color.
Pinot Noir is perfect for dishes made with wild mushrooms, porcini, risotto with truffles, and lamb. It pairs well with Chinese and Indian cuisines, balancing spicy dishes like Chicken Curry and Lamb Vindaloo.
