Pinot Grigio 'Ronco Calaj'

  • Russolo
  • Friuli Venezia-Giulia, Italy

Method & Production

The grapes are handpicked. After soft pressing with pneumatic presses, “alternative” static decantation of the must and inoculation of selected yeasts, they are brought to fermentation at a controlled temperature (14 – 16 °C).

The fermentation takes place partly in stainless steel tanks, with ongoing management of the fermentative dynamics. At the end of the fermentation, the wine is kept on fine lees until bottling.

Tasting notes

Pale yellow color. It has the typical fragrance of white fleshed fruit as well as acacia flowers. As a young wine the fermentative aromatic notes stand out. In the mouth it is elegantly fruity and well structured. Good balance between acidity and aroma with a long and persistent finish.

Food matching

Perfect with cured ham, fresh cheeses and all first courses. It also goes well with fish and white meat.
