Deion: Marjon comes in a lovely ruby red with a garnet shimmer. An enticing nose of wild berries, plum and cherry is enhanced by spicy aromas and followed by a beautiful freshness on the palate, recalling the elevation of the vineyards where the grapes selected for Marjon originate. This elegant pinot noir displays classy and seductive tannins, underpinned by zesty acidity and a fruity and juicy finale with an evident touch of spice.
Grape varierty: 100% Pinot Noir
Production area: The Pinot Nero grapes used to produce our Marjon grow on calcareous clay soils on a hillside area at 350 to 650 m above sea level. The vineyards are subject to a great diurnal temperature variation, with hot days, influenced by the Mediterranean climate, and cold nights, as the temperature falls thanks to the cool breeze the surrounding mountains. The name Marjon stems the calcareous rock layer overlooking the vineyards (in pre- Latin Indo-European language marra means detritus).
Vinification: The grapes are handpicked and gently placed into small containers to keep them intact. After crushing and destemming, the must and the skins softly slide down to the underlying barrels, where they are cold soaked for four days. After two weeks of fermentation the wine is racked off the lees and rests for three days in concrete vats before being transferred to oak barrels called pieces (i.e. 228 l barrels).
Matching: Thanks to its versatility this pinot noir pairs well with any kind of pasta dish with meat, game or mushrooms as well as veal tartare, red meat or wild game. Excellent with tasty cheeses as well.

During the hot season, which did not allow for air curing, in earlier times people began to cook the meat first and then lightly smoke it. This resulted in a good shelf life and a food product with an extraordinary taste and aroma.
It is produced using white grape Must, acetified and aged in oak barrels to get its typical amber colour. Its most striking feature is that it does not alter the colour of dishes but it adds a fruity and mildly acid aroma and flavour (excellent to replace wine vinegar).
