The grapes to produce the Pinot Grigio delle Venezie DOC Novità underwent brief skin contact maceration prior to being gently pressed. Cool fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 18°C with carefully selected yeasts. The wine was left to rest in tank to retain the vibrancy and purity of fruit until it was prepared for bottling.
The vines are on average 10 years old and are trained according to the Guyot method. They are grown in volcanic soils, which are known for imparting fresh and mineral qualities to the resulting wines.
The grapes for the Novità wines are sourced from Italy’s premium wine producing regions, Emilia Romagna and Veneto (Pinot Grigio). Trebbiano and Sangiovese are the archetypical mainstays of many a trattoria and offer delicious easy-drinking alternatives to international varieties, while the Pinot Grigio offers excellent typicity. The Novità collection is made by winemaker Enrico Salvatore of Cevico, one of Italy’s most important wine-making organisations, who own over 6,700 hectares of vines, so consistency of quality is guaranteed.
