Cordero San Giorgio Tiamat Pinot Nero
San Giorgio's name comes from the legend of St. George and the dragon. In Babylonian mythology, Tiamat is the mother of the whole cosmos, the primordial goddess of the oceans and salt waters, and is depicted in traditional iconography as a dragon.
The nine parcels of Pinot Nero are hand-harvested and vinified separately, following different processes in order to express the specific characteristics of each single terroir. Part of the grapes are de-stemmed but not pressed in order to keep the grapes intact. 10% of the grapes proceed with whole-cluster vinification. The wine ages in French oak barriques and stainless-steel tanks for several months. Then the single parcels are blended, bottled, and released after resting at least 4 months. Clear and luminous ruby red color. Aromas of small red fruits, along with notes of undergrowth and a slight spiciness characterize the nose. Fresh, lighter in body with pleasant soft tannins on the palate.
