Ferrari Carano Pinot Grigio 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

With its delicate aromas and delicious flavors, our 2011 Ferrari-Carano Pinot Grigio is a perfect, light, white wine for sipping or as an aperitif. This wine has aromas of lime, white peach, green apple, mineral and a touch of honeysuckle. Clean, refreshing flavors of lemon and honeydew melon, nice acidity, a round mouthfeel and a crisp, lingering finish. Pinot Grigio is an ideal wine to pair with many types of cuisines. Our favorite pairings include dishes such as seafood salad, pan-seared scallops, oysters on the half shell, or entrées with lively and spicy flavors one might find in Asian cuisine.

Ferrari-Carano vineyard practices are customized to match the particular characteristics of each vineyard to help the vines produce the best fruit possible, and to in turn, achieve the best wine possible. Directed by Don Carano and orchestrated under the supervision of Steve Domenichelli, Director of Vineyard Operations, these practices are extremely labor intensive. Steve and his team implement irrigation and nutrient regimes, trellis system and canopy management, rootstock and clone combinations, and pruning and cane selection for each vineyard site and each block within a vineyard. Because of Sonoma County's diverse geological makeup, even within one vineyard parcel there may be several different types of soil with different degrees of nutrients for vines and water-holding capacity. In addition, Steve and his team practice sustainable farming techniques, such as recycling organic matter for use as mulch in the vineyards, planting cover crops and other plant species to avoid soil erosion, add desirable nutrients back to the soil and to attract desirable insects, and integrating animals to naturally enhance biodiversity and nutrient recycling.
