The wines

PINOT GRIGIO

Classification: D.O.C. ISONZO

Grape variety: 100% Pinot Grigio

History: grapevine with French origins. A geminated mutation of Pinot Nero. Friuli’s climatic conditions favour the success of this variety. It is one of our region’s best known wines world wide.

Tasting notes: it has a distinct, marked bouquet recalling acacia flowers. Dry, gentle, full, pleasantly bitter in taste, with a notable aroma of artemisia.

Vinification: the grapes, gathered at a temperature of 26° C, upon arrival in the winery were immediately separated, by rotation and compression, from their cluster, then soft pressed immediately so as to avoid their skins’ loss of colour. Cooling of the must at 15° C. Settling overnight. Pouring of the must cleaned by the inoculation of selected yeast. Fermentation at 18° C, for 10 days. Decanting. Ageing in stainless steel vats.

Serving temperature: 10/12°C.
