VINEYARD: Roverè della Luna and Valle dei Laghi north of Lake Garda. The two areas differ in their origins: Roverè della Luna soils are fluvial-glacial while those in the Valle dei Laghi are alluvial. Climates range from Alpine-continental in Roverè della Luna to the sub-Mediterranean climate in the Valle dei Laghi.
VINIFICATION: Vinification is carried out off the skins and the must is obtained from a soft crushing of the whole bunches, to prevent the pink colour of the skins from being extracted. Selected yeast and a controlled temperature (20°C) are used to aid fermentation. The wine is then fined in stainless steel vats for four months, after which it is cold bottled.
DESCRIPTION: Pale straw yellow colour with greenish reflections. This Pinot Grigio has a delicate, yet intense bouquet with marked floral notes when young, which becomes wider and reminiscent of white fruits (ripe pear) with ageing. Its taste is elegant but discreet, with a pleasantly fresh flavour due to the light acidity which exalts the sensations.
MATCHING WITH FOOD: Non-spicy fish soups, seafood risottos, baked fish, cold white meats.
SERVING TEMPERATURE: 10 °C
