Birichino's Pinot Noir comes from four sites all suited in their own way to this finicky grape. Expect to unearth the forest floor with a kiss of wild strawberries and dark cherries, complemented by crystalline minerality and a lifted acid kick on the finish. It's great now and will only get better.
