Aniello 006 Riverside Estate PINOT NOIR 2018
Just a few years ago, really good Pinot Noir from Argentina was something of a novelty, and it was often very expensive. Happily those days are drifting slowly into memory with the advent of excellent wines like this. A simple wine in many ways (and often the best wines are), but very true to the varietal with nice aromas of ripe red summer fruits and forest floor notes; light, fresh and juicy on the palate. It's from Patagonia, of course, widely regarded as the country's best source of Pinot.
Bodega Aniello ‘006’ Pinot Noir is made with 100% estate-owned, sustainably-farmed grapes. The name 006 derives from the cadastral nomenclature of the estate: one of the few vineyards in Argentina (if not the only) located next to an actual flowing river. Indeed, the image on the label depicts all of the elements of the varied alluvial-type soils that characterize the vineyard.
