Corte Giara, Pinot Grigio delle Venezie, 2021
Region: Veneto, Italy
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: Pinot Grigio
This wine is bright straw yellow in colour. On the nose, there are aromas of pear accompanied by wildflowers and a subtle, delicate smoky nuance. The palate is dry, with a good grip and a satisfying, fine mouthfeel.
The vineyards are situated in the eastern, morainic hills of Lake Garda with an elevation of 200-250 metres above sea level. These vines are planted with a south/south-west exposure on stony, well drained soils. They are trained with Guyot system, with a plant density of 3,000 vines per hectare. The average age of the vines is 29 years. All this means the fruit produced is concentrated with good depth of varietal character.
Corte Giara is the negociant label of Allegrini. The wines are made by Allegrini using fruit sourced from outside their own vineyards. They have a similar stamp of quality that sets them apart from most of the Veronese wines produced at this level.
