Pinot Grigio DOC VILLA RUSSIZ
Pinot Grigio by Villa Russiz, a traditional wine of Friuli that praises the denomination DOC Collio. It is produced with 100% Pinot Grigio, cultivated on the hills around the headquarter of the company, mainly on soils full of marls with south, north-east and south-east exposition. The grapes are harvested manually during the fresh hours of the morning. Then, the soft pressing extracts the free-run must that is immediately poured into the fermentation containers with a continuous control of the temperatures. The wine rests on its sediments for at least 8 months and then it is bottled. Pinot Grigio Villa Russiz is the result of a careful manual selection, a perfect maturation and a scrupulous wine-making, that considers only the use of steel containers, in order to preserve the freshness that characterize this wine. A structured white that is fragrant and fruity, perfect for happy hours and summer dinners.
