The Pinot Grigio is grown for a long time in the Adige Valley, where it is also called by the name "Ruländer". The shape of the grapes and their gray reddish color reveal the close relationship with the Pinot Nero, from which apparently it is derived. It is grown both in the valley, as well as on low hills.
The grapes for the Pinot Grigio Riserva are grown in the typical vineyard for this kind of wine: the so-called "Zablani", which is located in the north-east of Mezzacorona on a good drained alluvial, all the Teroldego vineyards similar.
Winemaking: The grapes are hand-picked and delivered within a few hours to the winery where they are selected and pressed. This is followed by cold maceration and a gentle mashing.
First, the wine is cooled and clarified overnight. The following day, the clear must is racked and mixed with yeast; it starts the fermentation at a controlled temperature (16 - 18°C), which last between 12 and 15 days.
The Pinot Grigio ferments in parts (40%) in steel tanks and 60% in oak barrels, which will give the wine its delicate and spicy notes. After fermentation, the wine remains for 6 to 8 months in oak barrels. During this time, the so-called "batonage" is carried out (i.e., agitation of the yeast slurry). Between the 10th and 11th month the wine from the steel tanks will be mixed with the wine from the oak barrels. Here is the mature wine with the typical vanilla note on the one hand and the fruity and aromatic characteristics of the Pinot Grigio on the other hand.
Sensory characteristics: Complex bouquet with notes of ripe fruit (white peach, pear and mature chamomile), that intermingles with the sweetish oak tone.
