Cantina Terlano, Pinot Grigio Classico 2019
Pinot Grigio / Gris 100%
Trentino Alto Adige
Intense straw yellow colour. Terlano Pinot Grigio pairs stimulating fruit - reminiscent of grapefruit, lychee and white melon - with the floral aromatic character of a freshly mown meadow. With its finely balanced components from aromas of black tea to exotic fruity nuances of melon and ripe grapefruit this is a superbly full and at the same time mellow wine.
Manual harvest and selection of the grapes; gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks, aging on the lees in steel tanks for 5-7 months.
Founded in 1893, the Cantina Terlano winery is now one of the leading wine growers’ cooperatives in South Tyrol, with a current membership of 143 growers working a total area of 190 hectares. That is the equivalent of some 1.5 million bottles of wine a year. We and our members have long had a strong focus on quality. That has attracted praise and recognition on the Italian and international wine markets, and in spite of its relatively small size, Cantina Terlano is now well established in the world of wine.
Our modern winery produces 30 percent red and 70 percent white wines, all of them of DOC quality (Controlled Designation of Origin). Following the last upgrade and refurbishment in 2009, our cellars now include a total of 18,000 cubic meters of storage space, which ensures that the wines can develop undisturbed. On the outside, the new tract has a natural facing of red porphyry, the stone that gives the wines in the area their typical character. The roof is planted with vines so that it blends in completely with the surrounding countryside.
