The freshness of this wine is a vivid embodiment of the Dolomites. This estate produced Pinot Grigio is cultivated in the hills and deep valleys of the Italian Alps which enjoy the winds that blow up the river valley from Lake Garda. This Pinot Grigio Riserva has a distinct and refined body thanks to the fermentation of some of the wine in barrel for 6-8 months.
PRODUCTION AREA
The Pinot Grigio Riserva is produced with grapes cultivated in the vineyards of one of the most traditional areas for this varietal: named “Zablani”, which is situated Northeast of Mezzocorona and characterized by watery soils and good drainage, very similar to the adjacent zone of Teroldego.
VINIFICATION
Part of the Pinot Grigio is then fermented in stainless steel tanks (40%) and the remaining 60% is fermented in small oak barrels, 1-2 years old, to obtain a delicate contribution of oak to the fruity notes of the Pinot Grigio. After fermentation the wine remains in oak barrels for 6-8 months. After 10-11 months the wine fermented in stainless steel is blended with the wine fermented in barriques obtaining a product with typical notes of vanilla and ripe fruit, but also with the freshness and typical aroma’s of the Trentino Pinot Grigio.

CHARACTERISTICS
Color: Light yellow.
Bouquet: Notes reminiscent of ripe fruit (white peaches, pears and mature chamomile) mingle with sweet notes of vanilla deriving from the refinement in oak. Flavor: Harmonious, elegant, refined.
ALCOHOL CONTENT
13%
PAIRINGS
Ideal as an aperitif. Pairs well with polentas, au gratin dishes, pasta with porcini mushrooms, fish and white meats.
SERVING TEMPERATURE
10-12°C
