Where Pinot Noir Comes to Life
Pinot Noir, a native grape of Côte de Nuits, boasts a rich history dating back to the 3rd century AD. The first mentions of the ancestor of this noble grape can be traced to that era. Carefully selected and preserved by Benedictine monks between the 7th and 12th centuries, they were the trailblazers of modern viticulture. They experimented with different soils, cultivation methods, and propagation techniques. It's safe to say that the Pinot Noir we know today has its roots firmly grounded in this historical legacy.
Echoes of the Terroir
Reliable references suggest that as early as the 1500s, a grape variety known as Pinolo, Pignolo Gentile, and Pignolo Grappolato thrived in the region south of the Po River. By the 1800s, Pinot Noir made its way to Italy, finding particularly fertile ground in Oltrepò Pavese. While it found its way across the entire peninsula, Pinot Noir has discovered a lasting home in specially blessed regions, like the southern reaches of Lombardy, embraced by the borders of Piedmont and Emilia-Romagna.
