Pinot Grigio

 

DOC TRENTINO.

The growing area comprises that recognized as optimal for the production of typical Trentino quality wines, where Pinto Grigio performs best on alluvial soils in the valley floor and on the mounds of detritus.

WINEMAKING AND AGEING

The selection for low-vigour clones and thinning out grapes to restrict yields per vine are pre-requisite for the production of perfectly ripe grapes, which in turn are indispensable for top quality. The berries are gently stemmed (though not broken), softly pressed and subsequently fermented in stainless steel tanks using temperature control, a practice now considered indispensable for producing quality, fruity white wines. After fermentation the wine is matured on the fine lees to enrich it with interesting complex secondary aromas, characteristics which will develop after a few months in the bottle.
