Maglen

SELECTION

Maglen Pinot Nero Riserva is a selection of precious grapes from two adjacent and complementary areas: historic vineyards on the Mazon plateau and steep and sunny vineyards in Glen. It typifies the elegance of Italian Pinot noir.

"

Rich in extracts and of profound depth. You will be conquered by sweet sour cherries, juicy red berries and lively spices. Preferable to many ordinary Burgundy wines.

Vintage Description

Mild temperatures in April led to early bud break. Favorable weather conditions in May further accelerated the development of the vegetation but a dry period in June slowed down shoot and grape growth. After a humid July, a warm August followed with many hours of sunshine. After several rainy days at the beginning of harvest, the autumn weather developed favorably with considerable fluctuations in temperature. The grapes profited from a long phase of vegetative growth and were in good health, though berry size was somewhat smaller than average. The white wines are very well balanced, with beautiful fruit, fine acidity and juicy freshness. Charming elegance and pleasant tannin structure characterize the red wines.
