Maculan Pinot Nero DOC – Maculan Azienda Vinicola – Breganze (VI), Italy
For three generations, the Maculan family brand has been selecting and vinifying the best grapes grown in the hills overlooking Breganze. A small jewel of a village at the foot of the pre-Alps in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy, Breganze’s relatively mild climate and rich soil are ideal for the cultivation of olives and grapes.
A 100% varietal wine, Maculan Pinto Nero DOC is light ruby-red in color. In the glass it bursts forth with fine aromas of red berries and underbrush. On the palate, it’s well balanced with interwoven notes of wild forest fruit and spices.
Extremely versatile, Maculan Pinot Nero DOC pairs well with a variety of first and second courses — from stuffed or baked pastas, to grilled meats and poultry, to aged cheeses. I highly recommend this bottle alongside homemade flatbread pizzas, too. What can I say.
