About This Wine

ON PREMISE ONLY

The King Valley is known for its stunning natural beauty, rolling hills and fertile soils. Perfect conditions for growing grapes. Valle del Re is a celebration of the King Valley’s Italian varieties and a tribute to the passion of the growers and winemakers that call this wine region home. The name itself means “Valley of the King” in Italian. The Valle del Re range is dedicated to the careful selection of Italian grape varieties from some of the best vineyards in the King Valley.

THE VINTAGE

The vineyards cycled through the growing season with their own individual rhythm, responding to the challenges of a wet, cool spring, and a long, dry summer to emerge with clean, naturally balanced fruit. The outcome is low yielding, high quality vintage with strong aging potential.

THE WINEMAKING

the fruit for the 2022 Pinot Nero was picked in March at 12.8° baumé. The grapes were picked in the cool early morning, before being crushed to tank via the chiller keeping many whole berries and a small portion of whole bunch. After a 48 hour cold soak, the must slowly warmed up before being inoculated for fermentation. Hand plunging and regular pump overs continued for about 12 days with ferment temperatures reaching a peak of 26°C. The wine underwent MLF and maturation in French oak to build structure, complexity and elegance.

THE WINE

The nose shows lifted black cherry and red berry aromas. These aromas are reflected on the palate with cherry and strawberry flavours balanced by earthy and spicey notes. French oak complements these distinctive fruit flavours and trademark Pinot Nero tannins. The resulting wine is intensely varietal, complex and persistent, reflective of the benchmark examples from Trentino Alto Adige and Tuscany.
Enjoy this wine with roasted aubergines dressed with anchovy and oregano oil, served on toasted sourdough.
