Specogna Pinot Grigio Friuli Colli Orientali DOC

2016

In a Nutshell

Fantastic Pinot Grigio made using the ramato method

Tasting Notes

Soft pink colour with copper highlights, a characteristic of this varietal. It is fresh and floral on the nose, with aromas of apples, pears and elderflower. On the palate, it has an apple and pineapple character with a lively, lifted finish and hints of freshly-baked bread.

Production Notes

The grapes were crushed and cooled immediately to 7-8ºC. Cool maceration on the skins took place for 48 hours prior to fermentation on the skins for six days in stainless steel tanks. 80% of the wine was aged in stainless steel tanks with lees stirring every 20 days, while 20% was aged in 1,500 litre oak barrels, with lees stirring every 10 days. After eight months, the components are blended together and bottled.

Press Quotes & Awards

Apples, pears and pineapple, softly textured, hints of fresh toasted crumpets. Fresh and floral with a lovely lingering freshness.

Roger Jones, “How Pinot Grigio/Gris shone at the Liberty autumn portfolio tasting”, the-buyer.net, 20 September 2017

Heady, rich nose that's a million miles away from standard issue PG. Lots of skin-contact character – they were doing this decades before it became fashionable! 17 points
