  • This Pinot Grigio is bursting with intense flavours of ripe pear, crisp apple, and subtle herbaceous hints of hawthorn and acacia. It offers a beautifully balanced palate with a refreshing finish that will leave you wanting more.

The grapes were gently pressed, and the press and free-run juices were separated. The must was settled at 14°C for 24 to 36 hours before being fermented at 18 to 20°C controlled temperatures with selected yeasts. The wine spent six to eight months on the fermentation lees, kept in suspension with period stirring, imparting texture and flavour.

An intensely flavoured Pinot Grigio with notes of pear, apple and herbaceous hints of hawthorn and acacia. Beautifully balanced on the palate with a refreshing finish.

The Castello di Buttrio vineyard is situated on the hillside slopes at 142 metres above sea level, which ensures excellent air circulation to keep the vines healthy. The Guyot-trained Pinot Grigio vines require careful cultivation and are planted in terraces to improve vineyard management. The soils comprise layers of marl and sandstone of Eocene origin, known locally as in Friulian, which contains marine fossils from the Adriatic Sea. This soil produces textured and concentrated wines, balanced by cutting acidity, thanks to the soil's high pH and cool temperature. The vines are cultivated using pest-integrated agricultural methods, with low environmental impact to protect the land, encourage biodiversity and allow the grapes to express the terroir. The ideal diurnal temperature range at harvest time enables the grapes to reach optimal ripeness, with a lovely balance between sugar, acidity and aromatic ripeness - at which point the fruit is carefully harvested by hand.
