|Outstanding Pinot Grigio from this small producer in North East Italy on the terraced hillside of the Colli Orietali Region.
Lovely straw yellow colour , light & distinctive. A full bodied & persistant flavour - dry & harmonious.
Minerally dry & chalky finish that leaves you wanting to taste more.... quite salty
Justifiably the best Pinot Grigio we have..........
Colour: White 100% Pinot Grigio
The Petruccowinery is the result of Lina and Paolo Petrucco's lovefor their land: we are in the heart of the D.O.C. area Colli Orientali ofFriuli (Eastern Hills Of Friuli), in the town of Buttrio inMonte, Udine (Italy).
The Colli Orientali ofFriuli are sunny and gentle slopes,ideal for viticulture, that has been practiced in this area since ancienttimes. The soil is of Eocene origin, basically made up of stratified clay andcalcareous marls. This peculiar soil, locally called ponca, isparticularly suitable for vine-growing, because it is very rich of mineralsalts and microelements.
Theestate spreads over a total area of 35hectares with vineyardscovering 25 hectares. Because of the focus on high quality the averageannual production consists of about 100,000bottles, as a result of an intentionallylow yield.
