SPECOGNA PINOT GRIGIO RAMATO
This wine is soft pink in colour with copper highlights, thanks to the skin contact during fermentation. It is fresh and floral on the nose, with aromas of apples, pears and elderflower. On the palate, it has an apple and pineapple character with a lively, lifted finish and hints of freshly-baked bread.
The Specogna family owns 25 hectares of vineyard on the hill of Rocca Bernarda in the heart of the Colli Orientali DOC zone. Their vineyards are set in a spectacular amphitheatre and are tended organically by Michele and Cristian Specogna, so the quality of the fruit they bring to the winery is impeccable. As a result, they are keen to get as much flavour as possible from the grapes.
Due to the quality of the fruit, they are able to macerate the skins in the must for 18 to 24 hours prior to fermentation. This gives a Pinot Grigio that is ramato (coppery) in colour and displays a remarkable intensity of flavour.
