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.)
Silky and smooth on the palate and displaying a delicate pink colour. Its nose offers an elegant fruity bouquet, with crisp and lingering raspberry flavours.
Great with white meants, prawns and crab, or on its own as an aperitif.
The grapes are destemmed and very gently pressed in a pneumatic press. In the meantime, the must remains in contact with the skins for about 6-12 hours, giving the wine a lovely pink colour. Fermentation then takes place in temperature controlled conditions in stainless steel tanks, for approximately 10 - 15 days, allowing the Pinot Grigio Blush to develop its typical fruity aromas.
