CORDERO SAN GIORGIO | Tiamat Pinot Nero 70cl
100% Pinot Nero
The winery’s vineyard area extends for about 20 hectares subdivided into small plots. The parcels of Pinot Noir
are harvested and vinified separately, following different processes in order to enhance the characteristics of
the terroir. The grapes are de-stemmed, but not pressed to keep the grape intact and on about 10% of the mass
we proceed with the whole-cluster vinification. Cold pre-fermentative maceration is done before the alcoholic
fermentation which occurs in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature with short pumping overs daily. At
the end of the fermentation, the wine is racked, and the malolactic fermentation is done in steel tanks.
The wine is held about 6 months in stainless steel tanks until close to bottling, and then it rests for
at least 2 months before release.
Clear and luminous ruby red colour. Fruity aromas, especially small red fruits, along with notes
of undergrowth and a slight spiciness characterize the nose. Fresh with light sapidity, and pleasant soft
tannins on the palate
Good pairing for first courses with meat sauces, and perfect with main courses based on grilled and
roasted red meats.
