We are very proud of our small, but stylish Il Casone range. We seek no shortcuts in fashioning wines which are fresh, interesting and bursting with character.
2017 saw a cold winter with abundant rainfall. In the spring there were pockets of frost which delayed budburst in some vineyards. Warm, sunny weather over the summer period helped to restore the normal growth of the vines and the grapes were harvested in a healthy condition with good varietal characteristics.
The vines are grown in chalky soils which are valued in viticulture for their excellent drainage. This, combined with the subsoil's ability to store water, provides the vine with a continuity of the right amount of water supply.
The grapes were destemmed and gently pressed. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts. The wine was kept in tank until bottling, to preserve the integrity of the primary fruit aromas and its fresh and zesty style.
A fresh Pinot Grigio delivering fine, delicate aromas of apricot and linden flowers. Full with a beautifully balanced palate of mango fruits in an easy drinking style.
A great apéritif wine, which also accompanies seafood and poultry in delicate sauces.
Pinot Grigio 100%
