Castel Firmian Pinot Grigio is made in Trentino by Mezzacorona.
Mezzacorona Cellars lies at the foot of the majestic Italian Dolomites. Its vineyards with pergola trellising, characteristic of the region, run from Lake Garda to the foothills of the towering Dolomites. A fresh and wild breeze blows from the over 400 lakes and numerous glaciers of the surrounding mountains, peaking at over 9,000 feet. Thanks to a spectrum of microclimates, ranging from Mediterranean and Alpine, and profiting from over a century of winemaking experience.
Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay are dominant in the Dolomites. They are well known for their floral tones, exotic fruit, ripe aromas and silky smoothness on the palate. Mezzacorona is the largest Italian estate producer of these two varietals. Each variety used for Castel Firmian is planted on sites with a particular affinity to it, in this case along the Valle dell’Adige and a mixture of traditional pergola and modern espalier training systems are used.
Castel Firmian Pinot Grigio is vinified with a brief period of skin contact to increase structure and richness, before a standard fermentation at 10-20ºC. The wine is bottled early without oak or malolactic fermentation in order to preserve the fresh varietal character.
100% Pinot Grigio.
