Bertani Duè Uvè Pinot Grigio & Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Member Review by tmuret:

Grape varieties: Pinot Grigio 50% and Sauvignon Blanc 50%. The vines are cultivated using “spalliera” method. The pruning is making using “cordon spur” method with 5.000 bases/ha. Area of production: Grape come from in the Soave area. The soil is of lavic basaltic origni. Vinification: The harvest takes place at the beginning of September. Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon are fermented “in white”, in steel tanks at a temperature that varies from 14° to 16° C. Ageing: It ages in stainless steel vats until ready for bottling; an aging period in bottle follows. Organoleptic characteristics: Intense straw yellow color. Strongly aromatic with characteristic notes of ripened peach against a background of elder flowers typical of Sauvignon and green pepper. The strongly textured, velvety taste of Pinot, with a good sapidity, a good sweet-acid balance and an aromatic aftertaste. Bertani is headquartered at the palatial neo-classical Villa Novare just north of Verona in Italy’s Veneto region. One of northeast Italy’s most prestigious wine producers, Bertani owns all its own vineyards from which it produces an array of estate-grown wines. Founded in 1857, this family-owned winery has enjoyed a reputation for quality from the start. The Due Uve series of wines – of which Due Uve Bianco was the first to be produced by Bertani – is the result of the the judicious and harmonious synthesis of two grape varieties, chosen and brought together to bring out the best in each other. Due Uve Bianco combines the body and elegance of Pinot Grigio with the aromatic notes typical of Sauvignon Blanc, thus achieving a truly original creation rich in personality and character, a fusion of two of the world’s most famous grape varieties. This is a versatile food wine that will complement shellfish, chicken, pork or its own; for $15/bottle it is a definitive Buy

"Of two grapes." Each varietal is vinified separately to maximize the delicate fruit of the Pinot Grigio and sturdy character of the Sauvignon Blanc, blended into a winning combination.

Due Uve, or ldquo;two grapes,rdquo; combines the great aromatics of Sauvignon Blanc with the clean refreshing minerality of Pinot Grigio. A lithe, sophisticated white, its lively acidity gives it a palate-cleansing crispness. Good with seafood, hors drsquo;oeuvres or on its own.

A 50/50 blend of Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc, Due Uve shows strong grapefruit flavors accented by peach and apricot. This is a versatile food wine that will complement shellfish, chicken or pork.
