The traditional 'ramato' style of Pinot Grigio rosé, produced exclusively from Pinot Grigio. Careful handling in the vineyard and winery, and a short soak in the press to extract the natural dusky bronze colour of ripe Pinot Grigio grapes, gives a pale, coral pink wine. An elegant and dry rosé.
The Pinot Grigio grapes are sourced from the Vallagarina Valley in Trentino - a zone noted for its fine, crisp Pinot Grigio. After hand-picking and selection the grapes are crushed, and the must - including skins - is immediately cooled to about +8ºC. 5 - 6 hours cold maceration, in the absence of air, takes place in order to extract the maximum aroma from the skins; along with colour. After this maceration the crushed grape must is softly pressed using a pneumatic press - and fermented in stainless steel at around 18ºC.
