Pinot noir

Red wine grape variety

Pinot noir is a type of red wine grape that belongs to the Vitis vinifera genus. It’s also probable that the name refers to wines produced mainly from Pinot noir grapes. The name comes from the words “pine” and “black” in French. The name pine refers to the grape variety’s tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped fruit bunches.

Triple "A"

The Triple “A” movement is an Italian movement created in July 2001 by Luca Gargano.

The “three As” refer to “Artisti, Agricoltori, Artigiani” (Artists, Agriculturist, Artisan).

Their manifesto maintains that there is a tendency, in the wine world, to use modern techniques and produce standardised wine, untrue to the nature of the grape and the terroir worked. The Triple “A” movement aims to group winemakers who disagree with this way of vinifying.
