Product Description

Summary Pinot Grigio is the most widely planted grape in Collio (and Friuli), which is made here in a highly qualitative manner with added complexity and richness. Terroir: Conti Formentini’s Pinot Grigio is sourced from select, well-ventilated vineyards located between 650 – 820 feet in elevation mainly in the Commune of San Floriano, and a small percentage in the Communes of Oslavia e Zegla. The vines are spurred-cordon or Cappuccina trained on marl and sandstone soils. The average vine density is 1800 vines per acre and the average yield is production is 3.25 tons per acre. Vinification: The grapes are harvested in early September, when they are perfectly ripe. The grapes are crushed and stalks removed. The free-run juice is transferred to tank where it begins fermentation at low temperatures. The remaining must stays in contact with the skin for about 12 hours at 50°F (crio-maceration process). The skins are then removed and the must undergoes fermentation at 55.5°F, followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine is then blended and aged on the lees for five to six months and prior to bottling.
