Pinot Grigio: fresh and fruity

Pinot Grigio Attems, which reaches the peak of its expressiveness in the vineyards located in the area between the Collio and the alluvial area of the Isonzo. The wine is characterised by a copper-tinged straw yellow. Its bouquet is marked by a impressive fruitiness, and the palate demonstrates all of the amazing qualities of the Collio: superb weight and viscosity, mineral-edged, savoury, tangy, and lively.

Serving suggestions

Vintage Report

After a cold, snow-filled winter, spring brought slightly lower temperatures than usual for the area. The even rainfall made possible a gradual and uniform budbreak. Temperatures held to the average beginning in mid-June, and the vines progressed normally through their growth stages. The berries reached their final size at the end of July, without any excessive heat spells, then August ushered in the expected day-night temperature differentials, so essential for the natural accumulation of aromatic compounds that are fundamental for our high-quality white wines. All the various grape varieties were harvested and fermented in the cellar, with the most meticulous attention being paid to each of the wine lines. The Pinot Grigio grapes were harvested and fermented in the cellar with the most meticulous attention being paid to each style of wine produced. In the case of the classic Pinot Grigio, it displays its hallmark straw yellow, and it was given a gentle pressing and painstaking settling of the must in order to preserve its crispness and fragrance.

Tasting Notes

The wine appears a light gold-yellow. A rich, complex bouquet releases a stunning, elegant array of fruit and fragrant blossoms, with pear, lychee and apricot complemented by floral notes of hedgerow and acacia. The palate is seductively crisp and well-balanced, while the finish, exhibiting a harmonious balance, offers a beautiful vein of slaty mineral.
