Corte Giara Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie 2017 (1x75cl)
Corte Giara is the negociant label of Allegrini. The wines are made by Allegrini from fruit brought in from outside their own vineyards. They have a similar stamp of quality that sets them apart from most of the Veronese wines produced at this level.
The vineyards are situated in the eastern, morainic hills of Lake Garda with an elevation of 200-250 metres above sea level. The vines are planted with a south/south-west exposure on stony, well drained soils. The vines are trained by the Guyot system, with a plant density of 3,000 vines per hectare. The average age of the vines is 26 years.
The grapes were whole bunch pressed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 14-15°C for 8-10 days. Partial malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place in September. The wine remained in tank until bottling.
Bright straw yellow in the glass with light and delicate aromas showing lovely Pinot Grigio character. Elegant floral notes are complemented by richer hints of Golden Delicious apples. This wine with its dry, racy palate and good depth and definition is a sure-fire winner.
