Delle Venezie DOC Pinot Grigio
This Delle Venezie Pinot Grigio is fresh, food-friendly and is fragrant of pear and white flowers. It has delicate fruit flavours, mineral notes and a mouth-watering, crisp finish.
In Italy they are also expecting a much smaller crop, 15% less according to official estimates, than last year, thanks to the cool, wet, late spring and poor flowering. And here too leaf plucking, in this case to accelerate ripening, resulted in grilled grapes. The delayed harvest dates mean that those in cooler, higher areas such as Chianti Classico have been hoping that they can pick their reduced volumes of particularly healthy, small grapes before autumn rains set in.
With this Delle Venezie Pinot Grigio we aim for preserving fresh fruit flavours and lively natural acidity. The juice was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks and matured briefly in tank before bottling. It is best enjoyed fresh and is ready to drink now.
