Pinot Grigio Collio DOC 2019 play

Region: Italy / Friuli-Venezia Giulia
Grapes: 100% Pinot Grigio

Collio is Friuli’s finest area of production and the Pighin Collio estate is ranked among the top five in the region with its southern-exposed, low-yielding vineyards on deep sandstone soils. The grapes for all of Pighin’s wines are handpicked and pressed in state-of-the-art pneumatic presses. The must is fermented and matured in stainless steel vats (no oak is used), allowing the characteristics of the grape variety to show beautifully.

harvest note

Winter 2019 was extraordinarily dry, with few rains, followed by a very hot March. The development of the flower during the first part of April was good with a hope for optimal production. May’s climate was characterized by rains and temperatures that were far below average, which slowed down development of the buds and clusters. Despite these adverse weather conditions, growth proceeded normally. Fortunately, at the end of May the hard rains ceased and the atmospheric temperatures increased, allowing flowering in optimal climatic conditions and giving rise to good fruit set, with smaller clusters. In July and August, very high temperatures and the absence of rain allowed the grapes to grow and retain excellent sugar content.

tasting note

Bright straw yellow with shades of amber. An aroma of fruit, with delicate notes of acacia blossoms, banana and pineapple. In the mouth it is dry with excellent body, balanced with an elegant aromatic varietal finish.

food pairing

Pleasant aperitif, with seafood appetizers, grilled fish, excellent with white meats accompanied by sweet sauces.
