Mabis, Uvam, Pinot Grigio Rosé delle Venezie, DOC Veneto, Italy, 2021
The Biscardo Family have been making wine from their base in Soave for over 150 years and are currently led by brothers Maurizio and Martino.
During the course of Maurizio's long and illustrious career, he has consulted for well known wineries around Italy and in doing so he came across the vineyards for their Puglian wines. Both the Pugliese and Veneto wines are characterised by an irresistible drinkability, aromatic purity and exceptional value for money.
This Pinot Grigio Rosé comes from a selection of the best grapes coming from vines of 15-20 years in age. These vines are situated on the foothills of the hills, where the soil is clay and limestone. This particular location gives the wine a delicate minerality, important structure and typical floral fragrances.
After being selected and harvested, the grapes release the rosé colour during the maceration of the must in stainless steel tank for one night at about 4-5° C. This particular process extracts the aromas from the grapes. The fermentation occurs at a controlled temperature of 16-18° C in order to preserve the fruitiness and the finest sensory characteristics. The wines is then transferred in stainless steel tanks where it refines and enhances its floral and fruity bouquet. After few months the wine is clarified and gets the final filtration.
