Attems Pinot Grigio 2015 IGT, Friuli Venezia Giulia

Tasting notes

A light gold-yellow with a rich, complex bouquet showing a stunning array of fruit and fragrant blossoms. Pear, lychee and apricot complemented by floral and acacia notes. The palate is seductively crisp and well-balanced, while the finish exhibits a harmonious balance, with a slaty mineral feel.

Producer note

Located in Lucinico, in the most eastern part of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Collio. For generations, Attems has been synoymous with vine growing in Collio. The Attems family has always held the conviction that a wine's quality and character derive from its local growing area. The Frescobaldi family purchased the estate in 2000 after years of collaboration between the two families.

Vineyard note

Located in the Collio Goriziano area, the vineyard was planted in 1963 and 2002. The planting density is between 4,000 and 6,250 vines per hectare on South, South-East and West facing slopes at an altitude of around 60 metres.

Soil

Eocene marl and sandstone created by the seabed uplifting 50 million years ago.

Viticulture

Double arched cane and Guyot trained vines.

Vinification

Fermented in stainless steel between 18C-20C. It is then aged in stainless steel tanks for 4 months with 15% aged in new and old French barrique for 2 months. It spends a further month in bottle before release.

Grape

Pinot Grigio 100%

Food match

Roast poultry and rabbit, even lamb and grilled meats.
