Not familiar with the wine? Here’s what you need to know:
This is technically an orange wine, or skin contact wine. That means it’s a white wine treated like a red wine! After pressing the grapes, the juice and skin are left in contact for 12 hours, this turns the juice a lovely, orange colour. In Italy they call this Ramato, or copper!
We guarantee this is the most interesting Pinot Grigio you’ve ever had! The skin contact inevitably adds delicious complexity. They also age the wine on it’s lees to round out the flavour. Lees are dead yeast cells that are left after fermentation, we know that sounds weird but the lees add texture and flavour to the wine!
The winery is family run, third generation. Davide, Alberto, Nico and our main contact, Francesca (she’s been to visit us, you might have tasted with her!) work hard to promote well-made wines with character and a stewardship to the land they work.
This wine is fragrant with intense notes of white peach, pineapple and wildflowers on the nose. The palate is surprisingly textured compared to the Pinot Grigio you’re used to, don’t worry though – it’s still refreshing and light, with lovely minerality and long finish.
What to pair it with? You’d be hard pressed to go wrong with lighter fare: white fish, salmon burgers, antipasti, roast chicken, vegetable dishes and more! Also highly crushable by itself!
