Stefano Lubiana Primavera Pinot Noir

Steve Lubiana is upping the ante with his second label pinot noir. Once made in stainless steel, it’s now fully matured in barriques. The fruit is on the rise, too, sourced from estate vines of 10 and 14 years of age and supplemented with purchased fruit. Black cherry, strawberry and plum are the themes, with briary notes carrying long and even. Firm, fine tannins will benefit from another year to integrate. Best price direct.
