Due Torri Delle Venezie IGT 2010 Pinot Noir

Due Torri Delle Venezie IGT 2010 Pinot Noir, $6.79-$11.00, 87 points, is a bit darker than the recently reviewed Pinot Noir wines, with deep ruby reds and rosewood making their way toward the not so broad transparent rim.
Due Torri has a floral sweet red cherry aroma.
The medium body carries fair acidity and mild tannin along with interesting fruit flavors including a sweet apple thing going on, harmonious with the sweet plum and red cherry notes.
The finish, a trailing palate with only hints of spice and alcohol (12.5%), fades quickly.
This "soft" red wine surprised me with its overall good flavor and drinkability, as I've only heard bad things about Italian Pinot Noir, but keep in mind that this one cost me only $6.79, making it a great "common man's" red table wine with a very good QPR.
I bought this as a "close-out" special at the Hannaford's Supermarket in Londonderry.

  1. I have noticed, not on a scientific basis of course, that all the Pinot noirs you are sampling through are not scoring particularly high. Bubbly, anyone?

    1. Vinogirl, I hear what you are saying, and if I had some PN Bubbly I'd taste them; so, I just better had get me some 8-)
      Thx for reminding me!
