Pinot Grigio

REDENTORE Pinot Grigio presents an elegant fruity aroma, with nuts and toasted almonds hints. Its freshness and minerality make it ideal with elegant starters, soups, vegetables risotto and grilled fish. We suggest to serve at 8-10°C.

Grapes

100% Pinot Grigio.

Production Area

North-east of Italy.

Soil

Alluvial very rich in clay.

Climate

Mild, with very few rain showers and a high summer temperature which allows the grapes to ripen perfectly.

Density of the plantation and training system

4.000-8.400 vines per hectare trained with guyot system.

Vineyard management

To obtain a perfect ripening of the grapes, beyond the normal vineyard management, we carry out summer pruning and careful leaf thinning. Furthermore, the yield is kept very low in order to produce grapes rich in body and aroma.

Harvest

Beginning of September, when the grapes are very well ripe but they still have a good acidity level.

Vinification

Destemming and crushing of the grapes, soft pressing of the grapes, cool static clarification and fermentation exclusively with wild yeasts at controlled temperature in stainless steel vats at 18° C. Then the wine refines for several months on its noble lees in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature. The lees are frequently mixed in order to increase the thickness and the smoothness of the wine.

Second fermentation

Alcohol

12-13% by vol. (it depends on the vintage).

Tasting characteristics

Intense straw yellow colour. At the nose it has an elegant fruity aroma, with nuts and toasted almonds hints. At the taste it is elegant and fresh, with an excellent balanced minerality.

Serving temperature

8-10°C.

Food matching

Ideal with elegant starters, soups, vegetables risotto and grilled fish.

Storage

In a cool and dark place, keeping the bottle in a horizontal position. Its structure and complexity enable the wine to improve during maturation in the bottle, which can last up to 5 years, reaching the top after 2-3 years from the harvest.
