Pinot Grigio, Amori

AMOR005
When Pinot Grigio is good, it can be such a treat; simple and yet so delicious, and certainly this Pinot Grigio just sings its gentle, nutty, crisp green apple character from the proverbial rooftops. In bald terms it is a dry, white wine from the Veneto region, but in the glass it is just deliciously open, soft and zesty with a wonderful refinement to it. Refreshing and clean on the palate.

Stefano Girelli - The Wine People

We have worked with Stefan Girelli for over 25 years, a relationship that has yielded many exceptional wines, from everyday drinking to fine Chianti estate wines. In 2009 Stefano established a new business called ‘The Wine People’ in partnership with Frenchman, Philippe Marx, and Dutchman Peter Kosten. They have combined their skill and experience to bring affordable good value wines from across Italy, with the help of renowned Italian winemaker Stefano Chioccioli who makes all the wines. (Please look separately for the superb Chiantis from Chioccioli.)

Tasting Notes

A fresh and fruity wine, with a bouquet of almond butter, green apples and citrus fruit, elegant and perfectly balanced on the palate.

Food Matches

Serve chilled with pasta, fish, shellfish, white meat or Mediterranean-style salads.

Vinification

The grapes are destemmed and very gently pressed in an pneumatic press. Prior to fermentation the juice is chilled to allow a natural separation of sediment and juice. After racking, selected yeasts are added to initiate the alcoholic fermentation. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled condition of 18°C in stainless steel tanks for approximately 10- 15 days.
