Pure Pinot Grigio Rosé

PURE055
Refreshing and delicate, with far more character and elegance than the normal 'mundane' PG rosé you see from the big factory suppliers. Casa Girelli, really understand how to make great wine and this pale rosé made from Pinot Grigio grapes grown in the Veneto region is no exception. A bit of a revelation!!

Founded in the late Nineteenth century, Casa Girelli is a historic Italian company that has made the art of winemaking its vocation.

Casa Girelli possesses a wide portfolio of wines, including many quality products from different regions of Italy.

Tasting Notes

A very delicate pale pink colour, on the nose there are notes of redcurrant and other summer fruits along with a citrus edge. The palate is crisp, delicate and refreshing with a subtle strawberry note coming through on the finish.

Food Matches

Perfectly paired with salad of hot smoked salmon, watercress and new potatoes.

Vinification

After de-stemming the grapes are very gently soft pressed and cooled. Cold maceration is initiated for 6-8 hours to allow the extraction of the colour from the skins (the characteristic "coppery colour").
