COLLE CORVIANO PINOT GRIGIO 2019
QUAINT QUINCE CLOVER
CLASSIC / 12.5 % ALC /750ML
Colle Corviano sits in the shadows of Gran Sasso, the winery practices ‘hyper reductive’ winemaking, producing tight aromatic wines. The Pinot Grigio offers stewed quince and apple, all held together by a pleasing acidic backbone.
From the producer: At Colle Corviano, estate-vineyard blocks are vinified separately and traced throughout the production process. Each vineyard block has been delineated and planted based on the accumulated knowledge of soil profile and chemistry, aspect (orientation to the sun), slope (vertical degree impacting the potential for drainage), and overall climate. Terroir defines our plantings, without regard to what may be fashionable today. Each block has its unique geological history, which provides distinctive flavours. As the roots of the vines forge deep into the earth, their individuality becomes more pronounced. The grapes from these blocks were planted in 1973. The Colle Corvino Parcel totals 15 hectares and is located adjacent to Picciano, Colle Corviano and Loreto Aprutino with an elevation of 300 meters above sea level. The vineyard has 7 hectares of Montepulciano and 8 hectares of Trebbiano.
