Pinot Grigio Riserva Trentino DOC 2019
Pinot Grigio Riserva Trentino DOC 2019 / Mezzacorona / Trentino
White wine from Italy
Mezzacorona has been cultivating its vineyards in the valleys of the Trentino-South Tyrol region since 1904. This area is particularly predestined thanks to the different microclimates: from mild to moderate and with deep valleys and mountain ranges with mountain peaks over 3500 meters high. Here, in the heart of the Dolomites, Mezzacorona produces wines with a unique, unadulterated character. Just like the region in which they grow. Mezzacorona wines are the result of precise knowledge of the specific properties of the sites and grape varieties. The wines are aromatic and elegant, genuine, and virtuoso. Just like the winemakers who grow them. Especially like the land on which they grow. Generations of committed winemaking families work with an eye on the environment and with the help of sustainable processing methods, they cultivate their vineyards according to integrated viticulture systems and guarantee natural products. A team of competent oenologists and agronomists works by the side of our winemakers every day and accompanies the life cycle of the product from the vine to the harvest and into the bottle. In doing so, they use the most modern techniques and production equipment at the service of tradition.
The Pinot Grigio grape variety has been grown in the Adige Valley for a long time, where it is also known as Ruländer. The shape of the grapes and their gray-reddish color reveal the close relationship with the Pinot Nero, from which it apparently originates. It is grown both in the valley and on low hills.
The grapes for the Pinot Grigio Riserva Trentino DOC are grown by the winemakers of Mezzacorona in an alluvial area of the Adige Valley on low hills northeast of the municipality of Mezzocorona (in German Kronmetz) in Trentino. It is the so-called "Zambiani" area in the Rotaliana plain. The grapes are picked by hand and sorted in the wine cellar within a few hours and pressed immediately. Then they are cold fermented and gently pressed. Alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature (16-18°C) can last 12 to 15 days. Part of the Pinot Grigio is matured in steel tanks (40%), the remaining 60% in barriques. After fermentation, the wine remains in barriques for 6 to 8 months with regular "batonnage" (stirring up of the yeasts). After 10 to 11 months, the wine that has matured in steel tanks and wood is blended.
The light-yellow Pinot Grigio Riserva Trentino DOC from Mezzacorona is complex on the nose with hints of white peach, pear, chamomile, and sweet notes resulting from aging in the wood. On the palate it is harmonious, elegant, and refined, with a fresh, fragrant finish.
At an optimal drinking temperature of around 10 to 12°C, this Pinot Grigio goes well with gratinated oven dishes, polenta, and white meat dishes. It is a particularly good accompaniment to tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms.
