Ancora Pinot Grigio Rose 2016


Tasting Note

A dry, fresh and fruity rose with delicate aromas of red berries. Soft and creamy textured - with good intensity of ripe berry and red cherry fruit, and a vibrant finish.

Producer Details

Set up in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Vini Piemontesi, the leading co-operative in Piemonte. All areas of production, from grape selection through to vinification, maturation, blending and bottling are meticulously overseen by Araldica's Claudio Manera and Lella Burdese. Working closely with growers and cooperatives, the aim is to produce a range of authentic, well-priced wines from local grape varieties. The mainstay of white wine production is Pinot Grigio, sourced from the Pavia region south of Milan, Friuli and the Veneto, with the addition of Prosecco, and Grillo and Catarratto wines from Sicily. The reds come from mature, low yielding vineyards in Sicily, Puglia and Abruzzo, the source of some of Europe's most undervalued and characterful wines. 

In The Vineyard

Produced from grapes grown in the Pavia region of northern Italy. The ripest grapes were selected from mature hillside vineyards and hand harvested in early September. The extra ripeness allows the dark skinned Pinot Grigio grapes to develop a pink tinge which is further enhanced by the addition of a small proportion of Pinot Noir grapes from the same vineyards.

In The Winery

The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness, crushed and the skins left in contact with the juice for 12 hours at a low temperature before gentle pressing. After a slow, cool fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks the wine was bottled young to preserve freshness and aromas.

Food Recommendations

Serve chilled as an aperitif or to accompany salads, cold meats such as salami or smoked chicken or seafood dishes
