Cantina Sacchetto was founded in 1920 and today is run by Filiberto Sacchetto, alongside his son Paolo and daughter Beatrice. Together they oversee all aspects of the winemaking process, with attention, passion and great flexibility. Through innovation and investment in modern vinification techniques, they produce stunning still and sparkling wines for which the Veneto region has become famous.
The Sacchetto family works with partner growers in the Friuli Venezie Giulia area of North Eastern Italy. Here the grapes for his Pinot Grigio Venezie Giulia were sourced from hillside vineyards around the town Trieste. These hillside vineyards, with chalky and volcanic soils are perfect for the growth of a superior quality Pinot Grigio.
The grapes were de-stemmed, gently pressed and then underwent brief skin contact to impart the delicate blush colour. Cool fermentation with selected yeasts took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks in order to retain the fresh aromatics and purity of fruit.
The appealing pale blush colour of this wine is obtained from the skins of the Pinot Grigio grapes which are pink in colour. A fresh and fruity wine with a delicate flavour and an off-dry finish.
Perfect on its own as an aperitif or with tasty light food, with prawns, smoked salmon salad and simple risottos.
