Yes, PIGNOLO is about to enter yet another new dimension in space, approaching as we are our 4th Degustazione (4D Tasting) in the series to uncover the real significance of this magical, micro, power-packed, bloomed dark berry from Friuli.
PIGNOLO 3D is once again shifting through the gears. It’s a murky, misty, mornin’, early Feb 2017 and our little Red 500 nimbly turns through the final foggy hairpins on our way up to meet Saša Radikon.

It was a round about trip over the hill from Ruttars to San Floriano and down to Lenzuolo Bianco. This part of the world has been home to the Gravner family for centuries.
