Pinot Grigio Trentino DOC 2017
/ 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 Lifestyle2017 vintage
The 2017 season started with beautiful, seasonal weather. The second half of April saw a sudden drop in temperature, causing a very small amount of damage to the vines. In May, optimal weather conditions favored the recovery of the vineyards allowing for blooming between the end of the month and the first week of June. Harvest of the grapes began on the 22nd of August, showing excellent sugar strength and acidity that resulted in a quality harvest.
Straw yellow in colour, clean and delicate, 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.
Fish, white meat, soup, pasta and risotto as well as cold cuts.
