Cesconi Pinot Grigio 2015 (1x 75cl)

The four Cesconi brothers have transformed their family estate in the village of Pressano, in the past decade. Whereas they previously sold all their fruit to the co-op at Lavis, today they are making some of Italy's most exciting white wines. All their vineyards are now farmed organically and biodynamically. Stylistically, their whites are more intense and perfumed than those from Friuli and slightly lighter, without the weight or fat that some of the top Friuli wines have. Their reds, on the other hand, have more weight than their Friulian counterparts.

The Pinot Grigio vineyards are found on the gently-sloping hills of Pressano at approximately 300 metres above sea level and with a southwesterly exposure. The soils are deep and rich with a considerably high mineral content given by the high degree of bedrock fragmentation; this bedrock originates from marine deposits dating back 240 million years. The vines are guyot- and pergola-trained with a density of 7,000 and 3,000 - 4,000 vines per hectare respectively.

Alto Adige’s winegrowers and winemakers were extremely pleased about the outstanding 2015 vintage for both red and white wines. Grapes were healthy in every respect, with excellent extract and sugar levels. For the white grape varieties, the weather shortly before the harvest was decisive. The moderate temperatures and the cooler nights starting from the second half of September 2015 were ideal for preserving freshness and developing complex aromas.

Fruit was pressed and the must was divided with 50% going into stainless steel vats and 50% in oak casks (3,000 litre capacity). These different batches were then fermented at temperatures between 18-20°C, which lasted eight days. The wine was subsequently aged in oak for eight months on fine lees. The use of large casks combined with prolonged contact with the lees enriches the wine while preserving its original varietal aromatic qualities.

Distinguished by its fresh acidity, this wine is crisp with defined minerality. Deep yellow straw in colour, the nose offers intense notes of pear, brioche and white peach. The palate is broad and rich, with complex layers of fruit character before a long finish.

Livio Felluga Pinot Grigio 2014 (1x 75cl)

Livio Felluga emigrated from Istria and established his property in Brazzano in the 1950s. Convinced of the winemaking potential inherent in Collio and the Colli Orientali of Friuli, he bucked the trend of the times and started buying vineyards. Their landmark Terre Alte was first produced in 1981 and they have continued to make innovative and consistently high quality wines since. Winemaker Andrea Felluga has embraced stelvin in a characteristically forward looking way. After experimenting with the closure for five years, he felt confident in using the stelvin closure to retain freshness and perfume in his wines.

The quality of the Felluga range is in large part due to the fact that the fruit is grown on their 200 hectare property, which includes some of the finest vineyards in Friuli. The estate's vineyards straddle provincial borders, being located in both Colli Orientali and Collio, but most are situated in Rosazzo in the heart of the Colli Orientali DOC zone. The vines are Guyot-trained, with an ecologically sustainable approach to viticulture. The soil is marl and flysch.

2014 was one of the trickiest vintages seen since 1984. It was a mild and wet winter, so pests and pathogens flourished. This led to lots of disease pressure in the vineyards, especially as it was a wet summer. In general, the whites have a higher acidity than seen in recent years so need a bit more time on their lees to flatten out.

The grapes were de-stemmed without crushing and then macerated briefly on the skins before a soft pressing. Temperature-controlled fermentation took place between 17-19°C in stainless steel tanks, where it matured on the lees for six months. It was then aged in bottle for two months before release.

Straw yellow with light golden hues. Intense yet elegant aromas of melon and candied fruit are complemented by white fruit and floral notes, with a delicate mixture of brioche, honey and flint. Fresh and smooth on the palate, this persistent Pinot Grigio has great balance and finished with a refreshing minerality.

The 2016 season saw many similarities to 2015, with a cool winter and abundant rainfall. The beginning of the vegetative cycle saw alternate dry and rainy periods, which allowed the plants to develop well. The hot and dry summer that followed led to an abundant harvest of high quality grapes.

Specogna Pinot Grigio Ramato 2016 (1x75cl)

The estate was established in the early 1960s by Graziano Specogna's grandfather and now, four generations later, Graziano's children are heavily involved. There is a small plant nursery on the estate in which they can do their own vine propagation, ensuring consistency throughout their vineyards.

The family has 16 hectares of vineyard on the hill of Rocca Bernarda in the heart of the Colli Orientali DOC zone. Grapes for the Pinot Grigio are grown on a small vineyard at 170 metres above sea level on a north-east facing slope. The soil is marl, sandstone and clay and planting density is 4,000 vines per hectare. The vineyards were planted in 1987.

The 2016 season saw many similarities to 2015, with a cool winter and abundant rainfall. The beginning of the vegetative cycle saw alternate dry and rainy periods, which allowed the plants to develop well. The hot and dry summer that followed led to an abundant harvest of high quality grapes.

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.

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.
