Pierro Cabernet Merlot Reserve
Formal Head of the PIERRO Household, he stands tall, elegant and impeccably dressed in tasteful silk fabrics and a structured top hat. His quiet manner belies a subtle complexity of character derived from his exotic heritage; although predominantly of Cabernet and Merlot descent, his bloodlines reveal a hint of Cabernet Franc and a firm grasp of European linguistics.
His understated presence belies a man of intelligence, refinery and subtle strength of character – like many a Duke, he defers to his formidable wife to charm their guests, preferring to linger in the billiards room where friends might join him for a fine cigar.
