A great selection of Pinot Nero from Conte Vistarino, the excellence of Pinot Nero in Oltrepo’ Pavese (Lombardy).

Pernice is the excellence of this winery. The malolactic fermentation is made in barrique where the Pernice remains usually from 9 to 12 months. The result is a Pinot Noir of great elegance and a delightful strength. One of the most well-known Italian journalist, Mr. Luigi Veronelli, regarded this wine as “very excellent and recommended”.

Bertone is the other great Pinot Nero by Conte Vistarino. Elegant, bodied, with fruit intact and evident, balanced with a pleasant minerality and a long and spicy finish. Well highlighted and harmonious tannins make this wine elegant and rich.Matching nose-palate punctual.

Costa del Nero, Pinot Nero DOC,  is made using a temperature-controlled stainless-steel fermentation process. Then a part of the wine refined in oak and the rest stay in tank waiting for final blending. The result is a modern, smooth Pinot Nero, loyal with wine lovers expectations but surprising for casual elegance.

Conte Vistarino

The Conte Vistarino objective is simple: to create elegant, authentic wines that express their terroir. Carlo Giorgi di Vistarino introduced the Pinot Nero grape to the Oltrepo Pavese between 19th/20th century, going on to win awards in both London and Paris for the sparkling wines thus produced. His work was taken further by Ottaviano and Carlo, and is today in the hands of Ottavia Giorgi di Vistarino.
