Umore Nero Pinot Nero, Oltrepo Pavese, 2017
Pinot Noir 100%
The word "umore" ("humour") has various meanigs: it is not just a state of mind but also the juice that seeps from grape berries. the essence of "UMORE NERO" "black humour" has been encapsulated in the cartoon-like speech-bubble on its label: the expression of an idea that formed in someone's head. Both the name and the label reflect that this is anything but a classic-style Pinot Noir. Bright ruby in tone, its spirit is as young and irreverent as its name, and intense aromas of roses precede a palate of great elegance. A delicious and different style of Pinot Noir from the Lombardy region of northern Italy. The wines sees no oak, the better to show off its floral and red fruit style.
Traditional with contact of the must on the skins. Aging in vitrified cement tanks and bottling at the end of spring.
With Oltrep� Pavese to the west and Colli Piacentini to the east, Castello di Luzzano is situated on a hilltop at 270 metres above sea level. As such it is partly in Lombardy and partly in Emilia Romagna and this unusual position, straddling a regional boundary, has remained unaltered for centuries and affords the castello some undoubtedly spectacular scenery, as well as the opportunity to produce wine from two different wine regions.�The hamlet that forms the estate has, in addition to the castle, a church built in the neo-classical style, traditional eighteenth century workers cottages and an old custom house, which has been converted into a guest house and restaurant.�With records citing wine production at Luzzano dating back as far as 1000 AD, it is clear that the estate has a rich and long history of making wine. However the more recent history of Luzzano started at the beginning of the 20th century, when the Fugazza family took over ownership of the estate. With their arrival came the addition of the Romito estate (situated in Colli Piacentini) to the Luzzano stable. Currently, the whole the estate covers 120 hectares, of which 80 hectares are DOC vineyards. Today it is run by Giovannella Fugazza, and her passion is the driving force behind Luzzano�s success. The extensive vineyards include plantings of Barbera, Bonarda, Pinot Nero, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Malvasia. Notably, they have replanted Barbera in some of their best vineyards in order to maximise the potential of this variety.�
