Borgo Conventi Pinot Grigio

Collio DOC, Friuli Venezia Giulia

Tasting Notes

Straw yellow in color with possible coppery highlights. On the nose it is fragrant, layered and concentrated with notes of ripe pear and spring flowers that unfold to reveal a subtle end note of bread crust. In the mouth it is elegant and supple with savory characteristics. It is well balanced and uncompromising with a fairly long aromatic finish.

Goes well with fish-based starters, crustaceans and mollusks, fresh egg pastas, white-meat dishes and fried fish.

Fermentation: The grapes are directly pressed without any maceration on the skins. Temperature-controlled fermentation, activated by selected yeasts, takes place in stainless steel tanks for about ten days.
Aging: Once fermentation is completed the wine remains on the fine lees until spring, when it is bottled.

Orientation: south, south-east, east, west.
Soil: The soil of the Collio DOC is a mixture of marls and sandstone from the underlying stratified layers, and usually it is clayey in the higher grounds and fine-grained at the foot of the hill slopes.
Microclimate: Mild rainy springs and hot dry summers.
Vine training system: Guyot and Sylvoz
Vine density: 4000-7000 vines/ha
Age of vines: 10-45 years

    "Honeydew, Bosc pear and Golden Delicious apple aromas lift out of a glass of this delightful Pinot Grigio. On the palate, the wine shows the minerality of Collio region and the more savory sides of the varietal. Medium in body, it has a bright and sumptuous finish"

    "Buttercups, apricots, apples and some honey on the nose. Some spice and licorice, too. Medium-to full-bodied with a compact, ripe palate. Lightly spicy. Drink now."

    "This has a shy nose that eventually reveals notes of toasted nut, beeswax and honey. Showing the heat of the scorching vintage, the rounded palate is already evolved, offering yellow apple skin, citrus rind, bitter almond and a honeyed note. Drink now to capture the remaining freshness. "

    "Aromas of spring blossoms waft out of the glass. Bright and savory, the palate doles out ripe Bartlett pear, lemon drop candy and an inviting hint of bread dough alongside tangy acidity."

    "A rather reductive and herbal pinot grigio, displaying green guava peel and bitter lemons. Light-bodied and easygoing. Drink now."
