Pinot Grigio Trentino DOC 2016
/ Trentino- Alto Adige
Grapes: 100% Pinot Grigio
In Trentino, the difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures helps create wines that are remarkably fresh and robust in aroma and flavor. Production began with an immediate pressing of the fruit followed by cold settling for 48 to 60 hours. Vinification was carried out at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks for 20-25 days, to preserve the fresh varietal character of the fruit, before 4-5 months aging on the lees, with bâtonnage.
Blue Lifestyle2016 vintage
The first part of the Summer was dominated by rainfall, which allowed for the development of mildew and reduced the weight of the grapes. Luckily it was possible to lessen the damage and the quantity was only lowered slightly from past vintages. The quality of the grapes was saved by the beautiful weather conditions at the end of August, which was filled with sunny days and northern winds that reduced humidity. The grapes had the chance to ripen slowly, which increased sugar levels while maintaining good acidity. September rounded out the 2016 season with beautiful weather that aided in the development of what can be called a very good vintage.
Straw yellow in colour, clean and delicate nose, with aromas of acacia flowers and pear as well as light mineral notes. The fresh, natural acidity supports the wine's aromatic richness, confirmed on its elegantly structured, smooth, round and persistent palate. A crisp, defined fruity style.
Ideal with fish, white meat, soup, pasta and risotto as well as cold cuts.
