GRAPE VARIETY OR BLEND
100% Pinot Grigio.
TERROIR AND CLIMATE
The grapes for our Pinot Grigio are carefully selected and hand-picked from the family vineyards located at the foot of the “Colli Asolani” hills, north-west from Treviso (altitude: 80 to 120 mt above sea level). The soil consists of a high percentage of clay.
150 q/ha. Estimated yield per plant: 4 kg.
The destemmed grapes are soft pressed and allowed some skin contact. The free-run, noble juice (”mosto fiore”) is immediately separated. The must undergoes fermentation at a controlled temperature, with an average of 18 °C, using selected varietal yeasts. A small part of the overall juice (about 15%) ferments in oak barrel, the rest in stainless steel tanks. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is left to rest on its own yeasts in steel containers until it is ready for bottling.
