Origin

The fruit for this wine is grown on several hillside vineyards outside Verona where growers have reduced their yields quite considerably to produce excellent quality fruit. Soils are of volcanic origin.

Grape Variety

100% Pinot Grigio.

The Pinot Grigio grapes are a copper colour when ripe. In order to retain the ’coppery’ colour, the skins were left in contact with the juice for about 18 hours in order to give the wine this attractive tint. The juice was then fermented at a low temperature, around 15°C, to retain the subtle aromatic characters of the grape.

Alcohol Percentage

12%

Producer

The Cantina di Monteforte co-op is situated in the eastern part of Soave Classico and Soave. They have 1,200 hectares in total, part in Soave Classico and part outside the Classico zone, with some of the best vineyards in Soave Classico. 60% of their vineyards are on the hills, facing south and southeast, which gives wines that are riper and fuller than most others produced in Soave. The co-op has 600 members and harvests about 20,000 tonnes of grapes a year. Cool summer breezes blowing down the Alpone Valley from the foothills of the Dolomites to the north give warm days and cool nights, which helps with the accumulation of aromatic characters in the grapes. Matt Thomson works with Gaetano Tobin at the Cantina to produce these wines.
