Tenuta San Pietro Nero 2019

Montforte d'Alba, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyTenuta San Pietro lies in the town of Tassarolo, along Piedmont's hilly southern stretches and just a short distance from the Ligurian coast. Their 35 hectares, mostly cortese, are planted on limestone clays, at altitude, certified organic and farmed biodynamically. It is a medium-bodied blend of albarossa, barbera, cabernet sauvignon, with bright stony acidity and ample sticky tannins framing black cherry, black raspberry, cassis and kirsch, the latter of which gently warms the finish. There is a lovely freshness to hold this up and encourage pairing with tomato-sauced pasta or stews.Tasted: 29 November 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 24.15 LCBO Producer: Tenuta San PietroDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
