Ancora Pinot Grigio Rose

Ancora Pinot Grigio Rose

Established in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Castelvero, the leading co-operative in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte. Boutinot's aim is to produce authentic, well-priced still and sparkling wines from local grape varieties.

All aspects of production, from grape selection through to vinification, maturation, blending and bottling are meticulously overseen by Araldica's winemaking team of Claudio Manera and Lella Burdese - assisted by Boutinot's Tony Brown MW. Boutinot source from a range of private growers and cooperatives, with whom they have long term relationships, principally in Veneto, Friuli, Lombardy, Sicily, Puglia, Abruzzo and Sardinia.

Vineyards

Produced from grapes grown in the Pavia region of northern Italy. The ripest grapes were selected from mature hillside vineyards and hand harvested in early September. The extra ripeness allows the dark-skinned Pinot Grigio grapes develop a pink tinge which is further enhanced by the addition of a small proportion of Barbera and Pinot Noir grapes from the same vineyards.

Vinification

The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness, crushed and the skins left in contact with the juice for 12 hours at a low temperature before gentle pressing. After a slow, cool fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks the wine was bottled young to preserve freshness and aromas.

Tasting Notes

Pale coral pink, this is a dry, fresh and fruity rose with delicate aromas of red berries. Good intensity of ripe red berry and cherry fruit, with a fresh lingering finish.

Serve chilled as an aperitif or to accompany salads, cold meats such as salami or smoked chicken or seafood dishes.
