Cordero San Giorgio Rame Ramato Pinot Grigio
The grapes are hand-harvested from Cordero San Giorgio's vineyards in Santa Giuletta. Aging: Once the alcoholic fermentation is complete, about 20% of the wine is aged in second passage barriques for approximately 6 months during which frequent bâtonnages are done. The rest of the wine is held on the lees in stainless steel tanks for about 6 months until just prior to bottling, and then it rests for at least 2 months before release. Intense and luminous coppery color. The nose opens in a range of fruity and floral notes with hints of apple, pear, apricot, and acacia flowers, with a slightly sweet, almost honeyed finish. The palate is as sweet and soft as the nose. A light-bodied and elegant wine, with a round sip and a lingering finish, and a very light tannic final aftertaste. Excellent as an aperitif and as pairing for light appetizers, raw fish, and light cheeses. Perfect with risotto and main courses based on fish and white meats.
