Wine Tenuta di Corte Giacobbe, Ramato Pinot Grigio, 2019
White - This seemingly traditional Pinot Grigio offers a unique copper color, vibrant floral notes, and lasting acidity.
Limpid and clear to the eye, with a distinctive coppery tonality. Fragrant peach predominates on the nose, complemented by impressions of tropical fruit, such as pineapple and heightened by subtle floral notes of spring wildflowers. Elegant and silk-smooth in the mouth, yet firmly-structured and full-bodied. Beautifully crisp, it progresses regally into a lingering finish.
A very versatile wine that matches well to a wide array of dishes. It works well with grilled poultry and fish, salmon, white sauce pastas and goat’s cheese.
located in the Soave denomination, lie on the border of two provinces, Verona and Vicenza, extend over the hillslopes of the two volcanoes, Calvarina and Crocetta. From the summit, at 500 meters elevation, one enjoys a breath-taking view that extends east as far as Venice. On the upper slopes, the terraced vineyards alternate with generous swaths of woods, largely acacia trees.
A minimum of 3 months in steel tanks, with once-weekly bâttonage of the fine lees, followed by a minimum of 45 days’ bottle-aging
After the clusters are de-stemmed, the berries macerate for 12 hours on the skins, giving the wine its very distinctive coppery hue, and are then gently pressed. The must is gravity-settled for clarity, then inoculated with cultured yeasts; it ferments at a temperature of 13°C in order to preserve the classic varietal fragrances.
