Corte Giara Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Corte Giara is the negociant label of Allegrini. The wines are made by Allegrini from fruit bought in from outside their own vineyards. They have a similar stamp of quality that sets them aside from most of the Veronesi wines produced at this level. The vineyards are situated in the Eastern, morenic hills of Lake Garda with an elevation of 200-250m above sea level. The vines are planted with a south/south-west exposure on crumbly, well drained soils. The vines are trained by the ‘cortina pendente’ system with a planting density of 4,000 vines per hectare. The average age of the vines is 17 years. Harvest took place by hand in the first half of September with yields of 73hl/ha. This wine is bright straw yellow in colour with a fresh, floral bouquet, reminiscent of acacia flower. On the palate it is dry, elegant and well balanced with a lemony citrus character and touches of pear.
