Santa Marina Pinot Noir 2020
One of the finest varietal wines of Northern Italy, Santa Marina Pinot Noir is an earthy wine with hints of dark cherry and an elegant texture. A perfect accompaniment to food, this distinctive pinot noir complements grilled meats, turkeys, pastas, or roasts.
Bottled by I.C.R.F. VR/594 (AKA Enoitalia Spa), a private winery owned by the Pizzolo family. The Pizzolo family have been involved in the agricultural activity from the first post-war period when Giovanni Alberto Pizzolo decided to invest the savings he accumulated after many years as a farmer to buy the first piece of land. In the beginning he cultivated vegetables but soon moved to growing tobacco in Zimella, a little village in the countryside between the towns of Verona and Vicenza. After the death of Giovanni Alberto the family business was taken over by four of his sons: Giuliano, Augusto, Floriano, and Giorgio. A few years later in 1986, the Pizzolo family acquired some existing premises from a winery located in Calmasino di Bardolino, giving birth to the Enoitalia company. With this acquisition, a new exciting adventure started for the Pizzolo family and since that time—through a daily hard work—Enoitalia has become one of the largest cellars in Italy, respected for its reliability and able to play a role of protagonist in the international panorama of wine business.
