Ronco del Gelso Wine Home Delivery
Its harvest is postponed as long as possible to take advantage of a particular characteristic of Pinot Grigio grapes, which lose water and weight if left on the vine when ripe, concentrating the fruity notes. The most interesting vintages are those with hot, warm days around the harvest, which yield a balanced Pinot Grigio Sot Lis Rivis with low acidity and good body supported by richness of flavour. The alcohol content is always high, but never burning, and confers sweetness in conjunction with the prominent fruit. The citrusy nose is unusual for a Pinot Grigio and is echoed on the palate. Do not expect a simple wine, as many do from this variety.
