HARVEST & VINTAGE NOTES
Amiably tolerant of great variations in growing season conditions, Pinot Grigio is always at the forefront of drinkability and food friendliness in our range of white wines. It is harvested promptly when ripe, to conserve its structuring acidity, and fermented and aged in stainless steel with scrupulous isolation from oxygen. A deceptively simplified palate is backed by alluring tropical notes, suggestions of salinity and ample mouth feel. After a challenging 2018, this vintage is a beautiful gift to the faithful farmer. We will be celebrating this year’s growing season for many years to come, for giving us white wines of great intensity and fragrance, and reds of unquestionably long age-worthiness. The whole season was ideal, from a frost-free spring with abundant moisture, to a summer with moderate rainfall and steady warm
temperature building to extended, emphatic heat, with clear skies permitting optimum pacing of picking in the early fall. Romantic and youthful-spirited, in a true expression
of Italian winemaking style. Extremely flavorful, with apple, pear, and a touch of pineapple. Dry and well-balanced, with a glowing and intriguingly gentle finish.
