The Pietro Vertical
The 2018 Pietro Pinot Noir is a library wine and only available through this vertical set!
2018 | This 2018 Pietro is the very first Pinot Noir released from our estate Trovato Vineyard in Yamhill-Carlton. A blend of nine blocks of Pinot Noir vines, it represents as many different clones, from the classic Pommard and Dijon clones to newly selected cultivars such as Mt Eden and Swan. The wine was subsequently aged in French oak barrels (25% new) for 10 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. The diversity of Pinot Noir clones used creates a complex wine which is stylistically different from our Dundee Hills Furioso Vineyard Pinot Noirs. Although less than ten miles apart, the Trovato terroir (an old marine sedimentary soil called Willakenzie) is responsible for a more structured wine with predominantly cooking spice and dried herbs aromatics.

2019 | On the nose, this young wine has hints of rose petal, graphite, and tarragon, as befits Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir. In the mouth, elements of cranberry and orange, more “red fruited” than the 2018 vintage, evokes thoughts of fresh-caught grilled Pacific Northwest salmon. As with all Furioso wines, this bottle was made to be cellared and will continue to evolve in the bottle for up to 10 years. To enjoy this wine young, it should be decanted before serving.

2020 | This wine begins by awakening your senses with powerful aromas of crushed mixed berries: black cherries, blueberries, and cranberries. Rounder notes of cream soda, vanilla, and clove soon follow. The palate contains more black fruit and dusky spice, with chalky tannins and refreshing acidity that promise to soften with time.
