KRIS Pinot Noir 2014

KRIS

In Sicily the vineyard slopes are among the most highly regarded of the region. The microclimate offers the perfect environment for vibrant flavor intensity and important structure.

Tasting Notes

Dark ruby in color with purple hues, showing enticing aromas of ripe blackberries and vibrant red fruits, KRIS Pinot Noir is bright and fruity with subtle earthiness, a hint of spice and a smooth finish.

Food Pairing

It pairs exceptionally well with speck (the local thick-sliced, cured ham) and Taleggio cheese, and more casual fare such as pasta, pizza or smoked sausages.
