Regina Vitae Casal Pilozzo
Pinot Noir - Red Wine of Ageing
Bottle cl 75
The vineyards are located in the village of Monte Porzio Catone, south of Rome. For the production of this wine, we have devoted 0,5 hectare of hillside land to the Pinot Nero grape, at an altitude of 350 metres. The grapes are harvested and selected by hand and the fermentation of the must is temperature controlled, leaving the skins in contact with the fermenting juices for several days. The remontages in this phase are frequent, to ensure a better extraction of the fruit. The soft pressing of the pomace is followed by another slow fermentation, before the wine undergoes it maturation in new barriques. After three months of barrique maturation, the wine is bottled and left to mature in our tufa soil caves, at the naturally constant temperature of 15 °C for a further nine months prior to release.
"Regina Vitae" is a full bodied red wine, deeply coloured with fruity and floral aromas. On the palate it is dry, with a great persistence and a good length on the finish. We recommend it to be served at the temperature of 18 - 20 °C with richly sauced pasta dishes, red meats, roasts, game and matured cheeses.
