Luigi Bosca · Pinot Noir
Luigi Bosca Pinot Noir is a bright ruby red wine. It has intense and balanced aromas, with black fruit and spicy notes. It is voluptuous and warm in the mouth, with a smoked aftertaste and incipient tannins. It is clean and vivacious in the palate, with a well-defined character and an expressive finish with a floral touch.
