Grape: Pinot Grigio
Place: Alto Adige, IT
A Pinot Grigio made the old way, with skin maceration, “Ramato” as they say in Italy due to the copper color of the wine.The 2019 is spontaneously fermented in barrels with 5 days of skin maceration. On the nose, notes of orange peel, thyme, white pepper and green olives. The palate opens up with silky tannins, medium acidity and followed by notes of Mandarin oranges, ripe D’anjou pears, heirloom tomatoes and a bit of toasted chestnuts. A fantastic expression of Pinot Grigio at the opposite of many of the stereotypes the variety still carries. Less than 2500 bottles produced.
The wines of GraWü are the fruit of the harmonious alchemy between a deep knowledge of winemaking, the respect for nature and terroir, and a strong will to push the boundaries of winemaking in order to make wine as they think wine should be: the result of an artisanal and natural process that is the only way to get the finest wines and that also is the best option to truly respect the environment and care for the future of viticulture
