Pinot Grigio Venezia Giulia 2017, Andrea di Pec

 

Producer Note

Andrea di Pec was the nephew of Frederico d'Attems who was Chancellor of Gorizia in 1540. Andrea was renowned as a great teacher of viticulture, passing on his knowledge to many winegrowers in the area. His estate was located on some of the most prestigious agricultural land in Friuli and his impact on the region was such that even though the property, over the centuries, was splintered and changed hands, the name remained. It is still used today by the present owners, the Collavini family, who have been involved with wine since 1896.

Vintage

The winter period was cold and very dry, almost without rainfall. Spring brought warmer weather which resulted in early budding. Unfortunately on 21 April, frost covered large areas and resulted in a significant reduction in yields of approximately 20%. The summer was very hot, with temperatures reaching 40°C on several occasions, but regular rainfall every 10 days avoided water stress. At the end of August the temperature dropped and rainfall which was ideal for encouraging aromatic components in the grapes.

Vineyard

The vines are trained on double arched canes, providing the canopy with the optimum amount of sunlight and shade for the grapes to mature. The vineyard soils are made up of a combination of a red, clay soil which has a high iron content and gravel which provides the vine with good drainage.

Winemaking

A short maceration took place on the skins prior to fermentation in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures to preserve the fresh aromas and mineral characters in the wine. After fermentation, the wine rested in tank and bottle for several months, prior to release.

Tasting Note

A top quality Pinot Grigio, delivering aromas of delicate fruit and hints of hay, fresh nuts and toasted almonds. A dry, well-balanced wine, with a hint of nuttiness and spice on the palate with a precise finish.

Serving Suggestion

Serve chilled with seafood antipasti, light pasta sauces, vegetable based risottos or platters of cold cuts.
