2008 Feudo Arancio Pinot Noir

2008 Feudo Arancio Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir – thanks to the book and movie Sideways we all know by now that it’s “a hard grape to grow;” however, it seems to be doing quite well in Sicily, where Feudo Arancio has planted its vineyards on the south coast of the island. I would think the hot sun and intense light of Sicily would overwhelm the delicate Pinot vines, but the 2008 vintage, at least, serves to prove me wrong.

This wine pours a luscious, dark ruby color, with a jammy nose of black cherry with light floral notes. The Feudo Arancio is very straightforward and easy to drink; this isn’t a complex Pinot by any means. Very fruity and clean, with a long, soft, finish, this does well on its own but could also stand up to a hearty winter meal.

Snooth prices this bottle starting at $7.99, which I think is a fair price for a fair bottle of wine.
