Bella Sera Pinot Noir From Italy

I’m catching up on my tasting and notes after having been out of pocket for a bit.  Here’s another one!

Vineyard: Bella Sera
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Vintage: 2011
Appellation: Provincia di Pavia, Italy (IGT)
Price: $9

Notes:   This Pinot has a dark red color in the glass and a very light weight on the tongue.  Flavors for me were primarily strawberry and plum fruit with notes of violets and chlorophyll (grass, if you will) as it ran the palate.  For such a light-bodied selection, it surprised me with a rather long finish which included a pleasant hint of prune.  I could see this as a nice replacement to a Chianti and served with a plate of spaghetti Bolognese or similar dish.

Important:  I am not a professional sommelier or wine connoisseur.  Please see “About” for my full disclaimer.
