Pinot Grigio Alto Adige Doc 2019 – Rottensteiner
Pairing: Fish-based appetizers, Fish-based main dishes, Second dishes featuring white meats
|Wine type||White Wine|
|Vineyards||Our Pinot Grigio grows in Branzollo and Frangarto, two villages in the South of Bolzano, one in the valley, the other one on a slight slope, at an altitude of 250 – 300 m. Another part comes from S. Giacomo in Sabbia next to Bolzano at 450 m and from Auna di Sotto at 600 m. In this way, we have a full-bodied, structured, but also minerally and elegant wine.|
|Soil||Gravel, slightly loamy, sedimentary soils.|
|Vinification||After fermentation at 19°C, the Pinot Grigio maturates in stainless steel tanks. Extreme caution in the vinification makes the typical fruity notes pass from the grape to the wine.|
|Residual Sugar||2,6 g/l.|
Although the Pinot Grigio is a relative of the Pinot Bianco, they are yet quite different – not only because of the copper-coloured berries of the Pinot Grigio, but also because of the characteristics of the wines. The Pinot Grigio is more complex, with more intense colour and notes of banana, vanilla and spices.
The Pinot Grigio fits very well with fish, starters and not too spicy white meat.
