Ca’ Montini is single vineyard premium Pinot Grigio DOC crafted to showcase the quality and winemaking history of Trentino. The wine is crafted with fruit grown in the highly prized Terre Di Valfredda vineyard, named after the small valley in which it lies known by the locals as Valfredda or “Cold Valley”.
The ideal conditions for ripening Pinot Grigio are provided by the surrounding mountains and perfect east/west exposure of the vineyard. The Ca’ Montini project was conceived under the direction of acclaimed award winning winemaker Riccardo Cotarella and his technical staff to demonstrate that with discerning site selection, vineyard management and winemaking Trentino can produce prestigious wines of authenticity and excellence.
Ca’ Montini is a welcome surprise from the innocuous and uninteresting Pinot Grigio often found in the mainstream market. The wine is lemony fresh and breezy on the nose, with aromas of wet stone, apricot, pear, and Maraschino cherry. Bone-dry and mineral laden on the palate, it presents fresh squeezed lemon juice with just a hint of green apple skin.
