Pinot Grigio is a versatile, white grape variety that develops a very light "ruddy" skin at full maturity, comparable to roter veltliner and sauvignon gris.
This wine is the result of a careful selection of Pinot Grigio grapes, harvested by hand and vinified as 'Ramato'. To obtain the desired shade, the crushed grapes are cold-fermented for 24 hours in contact with the skins, at 14 ° C in stainless steel vats. After this "skin contact" the skins of the must are split and the natural yeast can do its work. Once the alcoholic fermentation is over, there is a long rest period on the lees (deposited yeast cells and solids in the juice) during which the wine is regularly stirred (bâtonnage) to keep the wine in contact with the lees. This gives a lot of extra complexity and character. Bottling is done at different times throughout the year to ensure that the bottled product is always fresh and fruity, for this purpose the young wine is stored under inert gas to maintain optimum freshness.
This Pinot Grigio Blush "Ramato" has a delicate color. The aroma of the wine is characteristic of the pinot grigio intense, fine and fruity, with notes of black currant and pomegranate. On the palate it is soft, harmonious, dry and tasty. Excellent as an aperitif at 10-12 ° C to enhance the fineness and freshness. It goes well with charcuterie such as "sweet" prosciutto crudo and is perfect with pasta with a vegetable or shellfish sauce.
