October 4th 2019 tasting notes

Pinot Grigio or Pinot Gris derives from a mutation of Pinot Noir and nowadays is surely the italian white wine most recognized by international customers. Cultivated in Italy since Nineteenth century, it is most prominent in Alto Adige, Veneto and Friuli were are made the finest examples.

Pinot Grigio Doc Piave “Il tralcetto” is one of our older wines: we produce it since 1957. It is well appreciated all over the world for its nice packaging and for its ligh, very crisp and dry taste.
Full-bodied and velvety on the palate bursting with delectable
jammy cherry and berry flavors. Smooth, juicy and ripe. Of a nice
deep cherry-red, it shows an appealing rich nose of ripe red fruit and
spices. Its palate shows a remarkable juicy fruitiness with a delicate sweet
touch that makes the wine really approachable
Shy at first, emitting quiet notes of lemon and stone fruit, this wine opens with some swirling in glass reavelaing more confected aromas of candied pineapples and other tropical fruits. The palate is more demur with the acidity on the lean and mean side, emphasizing tart lemon flavors.
Deep and intense color with ruby hues. Black pepper, red bell peppers, cassis, cappuccino, tobacco and varied spices are part of the complex aroma this wine displays. In the mouth, mint and chocolate play in perfect harmony with black fruits. Great volume in the mouth, and the tannins are firm and ripe adding to a great balance. It is just sublime.
