Aldi’s Pinot Noir has notable earthy tones enriched with deepest, darkest cherry and the slightest hint of spice. It greets the palate with its fruity depth before offering up a soft, yet medium finish.
A fantastic medium bodied, silky smooth textured wine that compliments favorite family italian foods such as traditional Italian pizza. The delicate balance of flavours offered by this red would also pair it beautifully with chicken or veal dishes.
Due to the verstatility of flavor, this wine is easy-drinking, yet has a sparkle of sophistication thanks to it’s crisp acidity. With enough hints of tannin to cause the pucker sensation at the back of the throat, yet without the bitter aftertase, there’s little need to let the wine settle.
A great bottle at a great price, and one that’s worth keeping a spare or two for when the moment grabs you.
