Why we love this wine
The Anima range is made in limited quantities from the best grapes and only in exceptional years. This luxurious Pinot Noir stands up well against high-end New Zealand examples. It’s warmer and more fruit-forward than a classic Burgundian Pinot but these notes are underscored by subtly-integrated tobacco and cocoa notes from the oak and developing savoury notes from ageing including a hint of sous-bois, forest floor mushrooms. Eminently drinkable now but will benefit from further ageing to let those notes evolve and develop.
Why you’ll love this wine
It’s a light-tannin red that’s going to seduce you with subtle, Sideways-style sophistication. It’ll pair beautifully with chicken, white pork, turkey or even salmon. It would be good with soft cheese too. Here at Chateau Vincarta, we also enjoy it with conversation and nothing else.
