Production Notes

Upon arrival at the winery, the fruit for this wine was destemmed and gently crushed. This was followed by maceration on the skins for 72 hours at a low temperature to develop the wine's coppery colour. The must was racked and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged in the tanks until the following spring when it was bottled.

Producer Information

The Specogna family owns 25 hectares of vineyard on the hill of Rocca Bernarda in the heart of the Colli Orientali DOC in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Their vineyards are planted in a spectacular amphitheatre and tended organically by Michele and Cristian Specogna, so the quality of the fruit they bring to the winery is impeccable. As a result, they are keen to get as much flavour as possible from their grapes.

Due to this quality of fruit, Michele and Cristian can macerate wines on their skins for 18 to 24 hours before fermentation. This results in a Pinot Grigio, which is ‘ramato’ (coppery) in colour, displaying a remarkable flavour intensity. While this style is fashionable today, the wine has always been made in this manner by the Specogna family.
