DOC Delle Venezia area includes the hills ranging from Lake Garda to Collio, and a vasst plain between the Adriatic Sea and River Po. The Climate is temperate, fresh in the winter and hot, breezy in the summer. Rainfall is abundant but evenly distributed over the year, and soils are rather draining. Day-to-night temperature excursion is quite remarkable during grape ripening, which enhances their aromas. Grapes used for our Pinot Grigio Rose Doc Delle Venezie have their origin in the river Piave area, characterized by alluvial, lighter soils, which give the wine acidity, freshness and complex aromas.
> Grapes are harvested in the beginning of September.
> Grapes are destemmed and softly pressed, they undergo a 12-hout maceration process, during which the must is left in contact with the skins at a low temperature with the addition of dry ice, which reduces the risk of oxidation, cools the grapes, and favors the extraction of color and aromas.
> The must is then separated from the skins through a soft pressing and then undergoes clarification and fermentation at a controlled temperature.
> The wine is transferred into another container where it matures on lees for 3 months. Lees are yeasts that have concluded their life cycle and release aromatic substances which enrich the bouquet, and mannoproteins which positively influence body and stability.
