Cantina di Casteggio, a true institution in the viticulture of Oltrepadana, carries on a tradition intertwined with over a century of history.

The Pinot Nero Dell’Oltrepò Pavese DOC 2019 from Cantina di Casteggio presents itself as a transparent ruby gem in the glass. The nose is a kaleidoscope of underbrush, with subtle spicy nuances and balsamic hints that captivate the senses. On the palate, its smoothness delivers a persistence that invites savoring each sip with attention and pleasure.
This wine is the result of careful vinification: destemmed grapes fermented in conditioned steel vats, followed by skin maceration, a process that grants the wine its depth and complexity. Ten months of post-fermentation steel aging further bestow character upon this bottle.
Its virtues beautifully pair with cured meats, medium-aged cheeses, and game dishes. We tasted it alongside a herb-crusted pork fillet and were pleasantly impressed.
