This extraordinary and elegant white is made from hand picked Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) grapes vinified as a white wine by removing the dark skins, in a similar fashion to the production of Champagne from red Pinot Noir grapes. It is richly intense with flavours of white flowers, peaches and citrus fruits. Well balanced and elegant with the powerful fruit finishing long and complex backed by a firm acidity.
Tenuta Frecciarossa has just 20ha of vineyard within the ‘Oltrepo Pavese’ zone of Lombardy. These are wonderful food wines, almost exclusively enjoyed at the fashionable bars and restaurants of Milan. The zesty, dry Riesling has a bouquet of apricot and peach, whilst the red ‘Praielle’ blend of Barbera, Bonarda and Uva Rara is packed with red berry fruit softened by barrel age. The elegant dry ‘Sillery’ is an extraordinary Pinot Nero vinified as a white wine, and the barrique aged Pinot Nero was awarded as best Italian Pinot Nero by Gambero Rosso.
This white Pinot Noir has the body and power to match chicken or veal casseroles, osobuco or subtle curries and stir frys with oriental spices.
