Pinot Grigio Ronco Calaj

Method & Production

The Pinot Grigio grapes are handpicked. After soft pressing with a vacuum press, the must is inoculation with selected yeasts. Fermentation takes place partly in stainless steel tanks. At the end of the fermentation, the wine is kept on fine lees for between 5 to 9 months until bottling.
