Pinot Grigio delle Venezie IGP

Pale straw in colour with a green tinge, expressing its youthfulness. Our Pinot Grigio is aromatic with lovely floral & citrus notes. The wine is medium bodied on the palate with a good structure and a strong backbone of zesty acidity, with a well balanced finish.

Grapes: 100% Pinot Grigio
Vineyard area: the grapes are selected from vineyards in the northern Veneto. The microclimate gives the perfect preharvest conditions of cool nights and days which are not too hot. The effect is excellent fruit quality in the grapes.

Harvest: the Pinot Grigio grapes are carefully picked by hand in mid September. Each vineyard is picked several times over in order to pick each individual bunch of grapes at its optimum ripeness.

Vinification: the grapes are destemmed and gently soft 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. The wine is allowed to rest for a while before bottling. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled conditions of 18°C in stainless steel for approximately 10-15 days.
