Pinot Grigio Terre Siciliane IGP

Canapi Pinot Grigio is straw yellow in colour. It has an intense bouquet of tropical fruit and citrus. On the palate it is mediumbodied and perfectly balanced, supple and refreshing. This is a versatile wine, pairing well with a great variety of dishes or enjoyed on its own as an aperitif.

Grapes: 100% Pinot Grigio. Pinot Grigio has been recently introduced to Sicily, producing a very interesting and unique style of this popular grape variety.
Vineyard area: the grapes are selected from north facing vineyards in the Trapani province. The microclimate offers the perfect conditions to ripen the grapes.

Harvest: the Pinot Grigio grapes are carefully picked by hand in midAugust, when the grapes are very crisp and have very good acidity.

Vinification: the grapes are destemmed and very gently pressed in a pneumatic press. Prior to fermentation the juice is chilled to allow a natural separation of sediment and juice. After racking, selected yeasts are added to initiate the alcoholic fermentation. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled conditions of 18°C in stainless steel tanks for approximately 10-15 days.
