Grape Variety

Pinot Grigio

Vinification Details

Harvesting time is established by means of tests which measure the degree of ripeness of the bunches. After an accurate selection carried out in the vineyard, the grapes are destalked, crushed and the must including the skins is immediately cooled to around + 8 °C. Before pressing, 4-5 hours’ cold (+ 8 °C) maceration is carried out in total absence of air in order to encourage extraction of the aromas from the skins. It is precisely during this stage of the winemaking process that the copper colour, which is a feature of this Pinot Grigio of ours, is extracted, though to a limited extent. Once maceration has been completed, the crushed grape mass is softly pressed using bladder presses and the must fermented in stainless steel at a temperature of around 18°C. There follows a short period of refinement in stainless steel before bottling, in order to enhance the wine’s crispness and fruitiness.

History

Though present in Trentino since the end of the nineteenth century, Pinot Grigio, with its typically copper-coloured bunches, has only recently attracted the interest of consumers, due mainly to the excellent quality it produces here. As is well known, this grape variety depends to a great extent on the environment in which it is grown both in terms of climate and soil: it has therefore only spread to a number of regions, especially Trentino. The training systems used are mainly Pergola Trentina and Guyot.

Regional Information

The Vallagarina valley, which is the stretch of valley the River Adige runs through south of Trento, features a climate with hot summers and a good difference between day and night temperatures during the ripening period. The climate and soil conditions in this area contribute significantly to the particular characteristics of the grapes produced here which, if skilfully vinified, produce particularly crisp wines with wonderful aromas and balanced palates.
