Schiopetto Pinot Grigio

0.00

The wine is obtained exclusively from Pinot Grigio grapes, a varietal of French origin, cultivated in hilly areas, in soil which is of average marl composition. The bunches are small with round grapes red-grey in colour, and like Pinot Bianco it derives from a mutation of Pinot Nero. The grapes are hand picked, pressed in a soft press after which there follows a brief period of decantation in total absence of sulphur dioxide. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks under a controlled temperature. The ageing takes place on the lees for 8 months.
