Cielo e Terra, Casa Defra, Pinot Grigio, Rosé, DOC Venezie, Italy, 2022
Cielo e Terra is a joint venture between two families, Cielo, who have been making wine for over a century in Veneto and Puglia, and the Cantina Sociale Colli Berici.
Drawing on the Colli Berici’s vineyard resources, combined with the Cielo family’s winemaking skills, their partnership consistently produces wines which are fantastic value for money from both indigenous and international varieties.
Individual vine-growers contribute their grapes to the wineries based on personal cards recording all identification data of the production areas. During vintage, the agronomist in charge verifies the extent of maturation of the grapes and establishes vintage timing accordingly. Upon arrival at the winery, grapes are selected by type, area of origin and sugar content, as these indications are fundamental to determine the wine quality potential. Each bunch is trimmed to increase concentration, grapes are hand picked.
Hand picking of grapes, soft pressing and light soaking to get the soft pink colour. Fermentation at a controlled temperature below 20 ° C using selected yeasts. Storage in steel tanks at a controlled temperature always below 20 ° trying to protect the wine with nitrogen to avoid the oxidative effect of the air.
