Matteo Braidot Pinot Noir DOC Friuli 19

Recently, I introduced a terrific, inexpensive Chardonnay from the Braidot family. I'm delighted that a new vintage of their Pinot Noir just became available.
Over the last couple of years, the amount of Pinot Noir (Pinot Nero) planted in Northern Italy has been steadily on the rise. Warmer seasonal temperatures have tempted Vignerons to attempt Pinot Noir in the cooler northern regions -- their gamble is beginning to pay off. They're producing light and medium bodied wines of moderate alcohol levels in areas that were never conducive to viticulture.
The 2019 Braidot Pinot Nero is a beautifully light and lifted red, reminiscent of entry-level French Pinot Noir from 20 or 30 plus years ago. The bright cherry and red fruits in the glass are delicately elegant, yet finish with just enough structure for the dinner table. It's another terrific red to lead the way into fall!
