Alex Della Vecchia, Grinton Pinot Grigio, 2021
Orange wine, but it's pink! Yes, Pinot Gris or Grigio naturally has a light blush on the skin of the grape that leads to an orange wine with a hint of rose beauty.
Pinot Grigio from old vines planted over alluvial soils in San Donà di Piave. The grapes were destemmed, and the wine fermented on the skins for a month before being pressed off to old casks and concrete vats until the following spring. A gorgeous, deep shade of purple, its tannins provide just the right amount of flesh and grip to frame a riot of citrus, quince and spice.
