Pinot Gris Grigio Veneto Italy
Corte Giara was founded in 1989 by the venerable Allegrini label and a community of growers in Valpolicella, the renowned winemaking district at Veneto in the northeast of Italy. Corte Giara's philosophy is to deliver the highest quality approachable wines, made for everyday drinking, with a modern and stylish appeal, that are true to their place of origin, offering an enjoyable experience for all. The perfect accompaniement to grilled fishes and paella, baccalà or chicken recipes.
From vines averaging nineteen years of age, planted to morenic terrains, rich in skeletal elements and well drained, trained to Guyot system trellis, on the eastern hills of Garda Lake, at altitudes of 200 to 250 metres above sea level, with a south to southwest exposure. Careful management of vineyards ensures a significant reduction in the impact of unfavourable climatic events, achieving the most well balanced wine. Pinot Grigio is hand harvested, grapes are gently pressed, the juices inoculated and vinified in controlled fermenters at moderate temperatures over the course of several days, followed by partial malolactic and spell of unoaked maturation to enhance the bright varietal Pinot Grigio characters.
Bright straw yellow colour. The bouquet expresses the greener notes from the vine, judiciously sweetened by scents of acacia flowers. Dry and fresh on the tongue, frank and decisive, harmonious. Elegant and persistent, it leaves the palate with a wide, full and savoury taste. A mouthfilling wine that will be appreciated for its fine character, elegance and richness on the nose and palate as well as for its affinity to fine food.
