Pinot Grigio Colli Orientali DOC Price € 16.60
Sensory features: This straw-coloured wine has golden reflections. To the nose, it gives off pronounced floral scents that become fruity, recalling the flavour of apple and ripened pear. The palate will find this wine soft and engulfing as it wisely combines good body with pleasantly acidic backbone, which offer great drinking pleasure. Well-balanced in all its components, this wine has a good level of persistence.
Grape variety: 100% Pinot Grigio. Grown on Marly and eocenic at an altitude of 120 –170m above sea level in the Oleis di Manzano area.
Vinification: Whole grapes are placed in the press, where they are softly squeezed. Winemaking occurs in white, immediately separating the skins from the musts, in steel vats at controlled temperatures. Partial malolactic fermentation is then carried out and the wine remains on the yeast-filled steel containers for six months. It is then bottled and left to rest for two more months
Best served: Highly versatile when dining, this wine is an excellent match for white meats and flavourful fish like tuna. It combines well with fish-based first courses and hearty bean soups. Finally, it‟s perfect when enjoyed with aged cold-cuts.
Alcohol content: 12.5%
Bottle size : 750 ml
