Light gold with green hints. The first nose of ripe green apples, pears, apricots precede citrus and grapefruit fruits. On the palate, soft and harmonious, with a slight oiliness. Light-bodied and racy in the first instance, offering great fresh grapefruit zest flavours layered with sequenced green apple fruit, peachy notes. Textured, it worths a 90 to 91 points.
Yes, it is a simple wine; yet the Pinot Grigio fruit is layered. Weight increased on the second nose, with some richness from the 13.5% ABV, evident in the proper sense, and resulting in a pleasant acidity and weight from lees and minerality, hence the finish is surprisingly long.
IT is a DOC by the name of Isonzo del Friuli. Making is modern, hence the style. The grapes are whole-cluster pressed and allowed to settle at 10 / 12 °C. An impression of cleanliness, despite 2 to 3 years in bottle. The wine aged on the lees in stainless steel tanks for months.
