Color: yellow with intense coppery highlights

Nose: broad and complex, with flowery notes of wild roses, acacia blossom, tropical fruit and apricot;

Palate: fruity, elegant and full-bodied, with a good follow-though on the back palate and attractively balanced acidity. Soft, lingering finish, with notes of tropical fruit.

Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2012 Friuli Colli Orientali Pinot Grigio shows a surprisingly fragrant side of the grape with bright aromas of white peach, lemon blossom and honeydew melon. Pretty floral intensity fills in the rear. This is a rather unusual and especially sophisticated expression of stainless steel Pinot Grigio. Mineral tones and bright acidity appear on the close. Drink: 2014-2016.”,,, (Dec 2013)

Wine maker notes
Vinification: The bunches were carefully destemmed and left to macerate for a short period. Next, the fruit was soft crushed. The must obtained was then allowed to settle. The now-clarified must fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks, where it matured for about six months.

Ageing: After fermentation, the wine was left on the lees in the stainless steel containers for six months. Bottling took place in March 2004. The bottled wine was aged in temperature-controlled binning cellars for a minimum of two months.


Other text
This celebrated variety derives from a bud mutation of Pinot Nero. As Pinot Grigio prefers cool climates, hillside vineyards are its ideal habitat. Modern vinification techniques give the wine finesse and elegance while preserving the faint coppery highlights that are Pinot Grigio’s hallmark. Without doubt, it is the best-known Friulian wine around the world.
