La Tunella Pignolo comes from 100% Pignolo grapes, an ancient red wine varietal, indigenous in origin to the Eastern Hills of Friuli. The grape vines undergo an extreme thinning in June, living up to its name Pignolo - fussy, and is then harvested strictly by hand and stored in small boxes for a slight withering. The Pignolo is fermented using indigenous yeasts and stays with the skins for about 20 days. The Pignolo is then matured in French oak tonneaux for five years. 

On the nose it opens with intense sensations of undergrowth, sweet spices, , tobacco, cocoa and a soft mineral and slightly balsamic perception. To taste La Tunella Pignolo is full and character-full, dense and enveloping, with dense and elegant tannins yet pleasantly fresh and balanced. Pest paired with game main courses, slow cooked meats and aged hard cheeses.

Have purchased twice in the last month. The quality of wine is excellent and the service is amazing. We are enjoying trying different regions and variety of wines from Italy. The Vermentino was brilliant! Well done Team.

Ordered my favourite white wine from these guys yesterday and it got delivered to me today! That's the fastest delivery turnaround I have ever experienced - love it. Thank you

The 12 bottles mystery box was great. I customised the order to have 10 white and 2 reds. The wine was great and reminded me of European wine. The delivery was also super fast. I ordered the wine on Saturday evening and it arrived Monday already.
