VARIETAL: 100% Pinot Grigio — 20L one-way disposable
REGION: Veneto, Italy
ALCOHOL: 12.0 %
RS: 3.0 g/l
VINEYARD: Our Tiamo Pinot Grigio comes from a 25 acre organically farmed vineyard in Fossalta di Piave located between Venice and Treviso. The region is ideally suited for the Pinot Grigio grape with soils that are high in clay and sand and vines located on hillsides with good exposure to the sun.
WINEMAKING: After gentle pressing of the grapes and clarification of the must, fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats for 15 days after which the wine is carefully stored until ready for bottling in the early spring. No oak.
TASTING: This is a wonderful example of a beautifully balanced Pinot Grigio. The wine is fresh, crisp and dry but has a tremendous amount of flavor and body. There are suggestions of apple and pear on both the bouquet and the palate.
