Pinot Grigio is an elegant white, which represents at the best the classic Colterenzio line dedicated to the typical South Tyrolean vines. It has a pale straw yellow color, a bouquet with fruity aromas of yellow peach and melon, enriched with citrus notes. On the palate it's full-bodied, with a good acidity that connotes its freshness, with a persistent fruity finish.

Specification

The recent history of the Colterenzio Winery is made up of rebels and pioneers of winemakers who in 1960, initially 26, started their own agricultural cooperative to market the wine independently. So it was that in the small village of Schreckbichl (in Italian Colterenzio) in South Tyrol, the winery of the same name was born with the then ambitious and pioneering goal of producing quality wine. In 1979 the enlightened viticulturist Luis Raifer took over in the role of director who, recognizing the qualities of the land, the climate, the terroir and the local wine competence, recognized his potential in producing wines of excellence, bringing South Tyrol to levels until then unexpected. With this clear and well-defined vision, he began to give life to his project on his farm "Lafòa" on a charming sun-kissed hill, where he replaced the Schiava vines with the Cabernet Sauvignon and later Sauvignon Blanc varieties. But he did not limit himself to this, but rather introduced a new method of viticulture which favored the low yield compared to the high quality of the grapes destined for great wines. This methodology prevailed within the entire cooperative, experimenting with new varieties but preserving the method, particularly accurate in the vineyard and in the cellar. After 40 years from that turning point, from 26 founding winemakers members today they have become 300, who with their families, who for passion and for work, contribute every year, autumn after autumn to the success of the great Colterenzio wines.

The Pinot Grigio di Colterenzio is obtained from the hilly vineyards of Cornaiano between 280 and 450 meters above sea level, on calcareous soil and exposed to strong temperature variations, all ideal characteristics for this variety. Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 18 ° C in steel followed by the refinement of the wine on its lees for a few additional months. If left to age in the cellar for 2/3 years it does not betray. Perfect in combination with a good grilled fish.
