This extraordinary Pinot Grigio flourishes under outstanding climatic conditions on a stony, sandy and extremely chalky soil in the valley floor around the center of Cortina s.s.d.v. The favourable location of the vineyards, ideal sunshine, and the good ventilation of the berries assures the excellent quality of the grapes of this varietal, that is also a representative of the Burgundy family.
Winemaking: The grapes are pressed and the stems are removed in the pneumatic tank press. Before being pressed, a short cold maceration takes place in order to enhance the fruitiness of the wine. Afterwards, the grapes are gently pressed and clarified through the natural settling of sediments. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in small casks of French oak in which this particular wine acquires complexity through its 12 months aging and ripening on the yeast.
