Vigna Cantanghel Pinot Nero 2016: 3 Bicchieri Gambero Rosso e 5 Grappoli Bibenda

Vigna Cantanghel Pinot Nero 2016: 3 Bicchieri Gambero Rosso e 5 Grappoli Bibenda

The Vigna Cantanghel Pinot Nero 2016 has been awarded for the second consecutive year with “3 Bicchieri” award, the prize of one of the most prestigious guides, the Gambero Rosso. And, to confirm the judgment, with the 5 Grappoli of the Bibenda 2020 guide, reference point of the Federazione Italiana Sommelier. A success that gratifies the daily commitment spent in the vineyards and in the cellar.

The credit for these “3 Bicchieri” Gambero Rosso and “5 Grappoli” Bibenda goes to different people: those who take care of the vineyard every day, from pruning to harvesting and to those who follow the painstaking, patient work in the cellar. These collaborators, who since the purchase of the farm have totally embraced the company philosophy and live it daily in their job: scrupulous attention at every stage, patient waiting for cycle of the seasons, a deep feeling for Trentino and its wealth, a wise interpretation of changes, fidelity to tradition, the projection to constant improvement.

The 2016 vintage marked us with many rainy days until August, causing fear of an unpromising harvest. The lack of optimism has turned into the certainty of one of the best vintages with a sunny September, with excellent quality of the grapes, both from a health and sugar level point of view. This allowed us to harvest at the optimum time, in the full ripeness of the grapes of Vigna Cantanghel Pinot Nero.

Vigna Cantanghel, the heart of our farm, is a vineyard that extends for two hectares on a ridge of rock overlooking the Fersina stream. This vineyard, bordered by a nineteenth-century wall, enjoys an excellent microclimate, where ventilation and southern exposure create the best conditions for the grapes health. The 2015 vintage was caracterized by sunny days, excellent quality of the grapes for health and sugar level. A slightly lower production than in 2013, but of vintage 2015 we will remember the incomparable elegance of the body of this Pinot Nero. Finally our work, the people who take care of the vineyard every day, from pruning to harvest, following with pressing trepidation the harvest. No less important is the painstaking and patient work done in the cellar. We have mixed all these ingredients to give you a Pinot Nero Vigna Cantanghel to get passionate about.
