100% Pinot Grigio | 12.5% ABV

Discover this Italian white wine made from 100% Pinot Grigio grapes. This wine is a wonderful step up from most, it embodies the telltale orchard fruits and gentle spiciness for which the wine is known, but there is an extra dimension of grace and lace. Appealingly different. A wine that leaves you wanting more.

Guide to icons

This wine has a friendly aromatic and zesty nose with notes of green apple, honey suckle, lemon, pear, and spice. The palate is fresh, persistent and fragrant with a perfectly integrated minerality.

Service: Serve at 9 to 10°C.

Food Pairing: Excellent as an aperitif, ideal with seafood salads, fish-based first courses, and shellfish or soups particularly rich and tasty.

Today Giulia Franchetto manages the winemaking in the winery.

“In my wines I seek the authentic expression of my land and its history. I imagine my wines clean, direct and free to express their character. This is why my dad and I have chosen to work in a simple way, allowing our wines to be a pure expression of the grapes and the territory in which they were born." says Giulia.

The vineyard is located in the area of the Val d'Alpone: in the hills of Terrossa. In an impervious and slightly wild hilly landscape, vineyards alternate with woods, olive and cherry trees, and biodiversity reigns. This is where the Garganega thrives at an altitude of 220-230 m.a.s.l, giving birth to the Soave wines.

This picturesque setting is the backdrop for the vineyards of Terrossa, a small town known as "terra rubea" since Roman times due to the reddish colour of its soil. This unique hue is a result of the volcanic nature of the land and a high concentration of iron oxide, defining the area. What sets this place apart is not just its distinctive ground colour but also the soil's richness, nourished by the debris from lava rock columns and abundant minerals that continually replenish the earth. This precious and ever-renewing fertilizer, in the hands of skilled individuals, has always yielded exceptional grapes.
