Pinot Grigio DOC delle Venezie "Gondola" 2020
Case of 12 bottles.
Made from 100% Pinot Grigio grapes, harvested from low-yield vineyards in the Veneto and Frìuli Venezia Giulia, ranging from 30-120 mt above sea level. The soils are predominantly of alluvial origin, medium-textured, mainly clayey, with some gravel. Harvest was the end of August to the beginning of September.
Following destemming and soft crushing, fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled (16º - 18º celsius), stainless-steel tanks. The wine is aged in stainless-steel tanks for two months, on the fine lees, with frequent battonage. It rests in bottle for two more months.
Our tasting note: Bright, straw-yellow colour, with golden tinges. Fresh aromas and flavours of stone fruits - white peach and apricot - pear, and warm citrus, with slight herbal/floral notes. Dry, light- to medium-bodied, with fresh fruit acidity, good structure, and a lingering, clean finish. 12.5% alc./vol.; RS <4 gr./L.
Food matches: Easy to drink on its own. Pair with fish dishes, shellfish, white meats, vegetarian dishes and fresh or medium-age cheeses.
