Pinot Bianco is an international vine that’s widespread in Borgogna and Germany. It is found in the Colli Friulani territory, one of Italy’s most famous wine-producing areas, whose characteristics enhance this grape’s typical qualities: great structure, good body and an interesting level of acidity.
First, the grapes are de-stemmed, and then they are subject to soft squeezing. Alcohol fermentation occurs at controlled temperatures in steel vats. Partial malolactic fermentation follows. Successively, the wine is left in yeast-filled steel containers for approximately six months. Later, it is bottled and left to rest in glass for at least two more months.
This straw-colored wine has light greenish shades. To the nose, its fruity sensations are combined with a mineral feel that suggests the flavor of bread crust and hazelnut. ‘Subtle’ to the palate, it’s an elegant wine with good body and optimal balance.
This is a great wine for starters, risotto, savory soups or pasta and sliced raw fish. It matches well with oven-roasted pullets and stuffed pheasant.
