In northern Italy’s Delle Venezie region, the Pinot Grigio vines are planted to hillside vineyards situated 750 feet above sea level, where they benefit from well-drained, mineral rich, volcanic basaltic rock, calcareous clay soils and cool winds from the Adriatic Sea and Dolomite mountains. As of 2022, the Caposaldo Pinot Grigio vineyards have started farming organically with official certification to come soon. After handpicking, the grapes were gently guided through a pneumatic press, followed by inoculation with selected yeasts and three weeks of cold fermentation. Malolactic fermentation is avoided to promote fresh acidity, and the wine is not oak aged, allowing the grapes’ varietal character to remain prominent.
Fruity hints of pear, apple, white flowers, and sage balanced by a crisp mineral finish.
