In a Nutshell
A fine, delicate Pinot Grigio rosé.
A pale, delicate, copper-coloured rosato. Fresh floral aromas, with crisp acidity, apple and pear characters and incisive, zesty citrus fruit on the palate.
This is the traditional 'ramato' style of Pinot Grigio rosato - produced exclusively from 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.
