Cantina Lavis Pinot Grigio Trentino DOC 2021
The Cantina Lavis Pinot Grigio possesses an intense golden yellow colour, with a warm, inviting bouquet rich in scents of ripe fruits and honey. It has a distinctive rich minerality, with a long and fruity aftertaste.
The Pinot Grigio has been grown in Trentino for decades. Now converted to organic production, the foothill and valley vineyards of Lavis and Gardolo, with their sandy loam soils of Avisio river deposits and alluvial sediments from the Adige, provide the perfect growing environment for Pinot Grigio.
Vineyard faces west, south-west, with an altitude 270m. The soil profile is of loose sandy loam, moderately stony, formed of fluvial and alluvial deposits.
Manual harvesting of the grapes in mid-September with soft pressing, static decantation of the must, fermentation at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. Ageing on the lees for approximately 5 – 6 months before bottling.
The Italian replica of Pinot Gris, Pinot Grigio is a white mutation of the Pinot family, sharing its genetic fingerprint with Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc. Most commonly found throughout the northern regions of Italy, Pinot Grigio is strongly associated with light-bodied wines with a zestful acidity.
