Pinot Grigio

Pinot Grigio

Venezia DOC

The destemmed grapes undergo a brief, temperature-controlled maceration on their skins for 6 - 8 hours, the time needed to give the
must itstypical rosé hue. Following this maceration, the crushed grapes are pressed and the must thus obtained is clarified. At this point, the alcoholic fermentation is started with the addition of selected yeasts and maintained at temperatures of around 16-18 °C (61-64 °F).

Pinot Grigio

TASTE PROFILE

Its old rosé color with coppery nuances acts as a prelude to a fragrant bouquet

It’s characterized by delicate hints of citrus fruits and wild berries

On the palate it is light, vibrant and fresh yet full-flavored, with an engaging finish thanks to the underlying tangy vein.

Even if it makes an excellent aperitif, it expresses itself to the full when accompanying fish dishes with pinkish hints, such as those based on salmon or shrimp. It is also worth trying with recipes that include delicately spicy ingredients
