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 and calcareous clay soils. 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 was avoided to promote fresh acidity, and the wine is not oak aged, allowing the grapes’ varietal character to remain prominent.

Harvest Note
Harvest began in late August. Grapes were picked in the cool hours of the night between 7:00PM and 7:00AM. The challenging long hot summer did not affect the quality of the fruit of this harvest. Winemaker's noted a plentiful yield of good quality fruit.
Tasting Note
Fruity hints of pear, apple, san bucco, and sage balanced by a savory, mineral finish.
