Pinot Grigio DOC – Friuli Colli Orientali 2016

We propose a reviewed traditional version of a typical wine from the North East of Italy, Pinot Grigio. This variety grows in the heart of the eastern hills of Friuli, on well aerated soil rich in clay and limestone. For over 40 years these vineyards have produced small and compact grape clusters with a dark grey color, full of juice and with a thin skin.

Our Pinot Grigio wine is made according to the traditional method, where the grape’s skins are left together with the pulp. The result is a balanced and rich white wine with a very distinctive “peach flower” color.

Winemaking: destemmed grapes, short cold maceration of 12 hours with the skins to pull out more colour and aromatic components before the fermentation. Soft pressing, fining by flotation. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tank at controlled temperature (16-18°C). Ageing in stainless steel tank with battonage for 18 months. Bottling and then finig for at list 6 months before sale.
