Pinot Grigio Rosato IGT 2018
/ Trentino- Alto Adige
Grapes: 100% Pinot Grigio
Once in the winery, the grapes are de-stemmed and left to macerate for a few hours, in order to extract the typical light rosé colour from the skins; thereafter the grapes are softly pressed and the juice undergoes the fermentation with temperature control. Once the fermentation is over, the wine is matured on the fine lees for a few months, to enrich it with complex secondary aromas.
2018 was a wonderful growing season, though not without its challenges. Budding was uniform and started 15 days later than last year; however thanks to the temperatures of April and May, the delay was recovered. The abundance of rain between May and June caused only limited damage and the rain in the last days of August brought a beneficial correction to the sugar / acidity ratio. This year’s production is abundant and overall, the 2018 grapes are healthy.
Pale rosé pink in color, fruity and floral on the nose, with hints of pear and acacia blossoms. Dry and delicate on the palate, well balanced with pleasant acidity.
Excellent as an aperitif, or served with grilled fish, white meat and light dishes.
