MARCHESE LEOPOLDO PIEMONTE PINOT NERO DOC

Medium bodied red wine. 100% Pinot Noir grapes

Marchese Leopoldo is our Pinot Noir, a vine that is an uncommon choice for Piemonte’s viticulture. For us, however, Pinot Noir is very familiar and has grown in our terroir for over 150 years, since the time of our ancestor, Leopoldo Incisa della Rocchetta. Leopoldo Incisa was one of the first wine scientists in the late 1850s who brought Pinot Noir vines from Burgundy to Piedmont and began to cultivate them on the hillside of his Rocchetta Tanaro vineyards. Since then, we have always felt very confident with this most aristocratic of all the wines. Our Marchese Leopoldo bears the name of this man, who dedicated his life and passion to the study and improvement of Piemonte viticulture.
