Characteristics
Production area
Mezzacorona cultivates Pinot Grigio in the vineyards of one of the most traditional areas for this varietal: named “Zablani".
Vinification
The grapes are hand-picked and delivered within a few hours to the winery where they are selected, immediately pressed and sent to the maceration phase, performed in a cool environment with soft pressing. Part of the Pinot Grigio is then fermented in stainless steel tanks (40%) and the remaining 60% is fermented in small oak barrels, 1-2 years old, to obtain a delicate contribution of oak to the fruity notes of the Pinot Grigio. After fermentation the wine remains in oak barrels for 6-8 months. After 10-11 months the wine fermented in stainless steel is blended with the wine fermented in barriques.
Characteristics
This wine presents a light yellow colro and notes reminiscent of ripe fruit (white peaches, pears and mature chamomile) mingle with sweet notes of vanilla deriving from the refinement in oak. Harmonious, elegant, refined.
Pairings
Ideal as an aperitif. It pairs well with polentas, au gratin dishes, fish and white meats. It is the perfect complement to pasta with porcini mushrooms.
