About

Pinot Nero is the Italian name for Pinot Noir, the name keeping in step with the overall theme of the La Prova series: Australian examples of Italian wines. This offering by Sam Scott, the winemaker behind La Prova is an easy drinking yet characterful version of Pinot from the Adelaide Hills. Scott sources fruit from two vineyards in the Hills to make up this wine, combining the strengths of both sites to make a balanced and complex version of the variety. Campbell Mattinson rated it 92 points complementing its murky character and intrigue. Top value and brilliant drinking in the context of Aussie Pinot.

What it Tastes Like

"Firm, powerful pinot with smoky reductive notes and crackles of leafy spice. Cherried fruit isn’t particularly bright – it’s stewy and ferrous – but it remains lively, in part thanks to a gentle sourness. Complexity is the key. So too the firmness of tannin. So too, I would argue, the wine’s murky, undergrowthy heart." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
