Lunaria Pinot Grigio BiB
WHY WE LOVE IT
- This Pinot Grigio is fermented on the grapes’ skins and therefore comes out “orange” in color, resulting in a rich palate texture that must be experienced to be believed.
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Grigio
Elaboration: The grapes are sent to the pneumatic press for soft crushing, then the must is fermented with the skins and with their indigenous yeasts at low temperature (55/57° F) in stainless steel tanks, for about 30 days. Aged in stainless steel tanks on fine lees, followed by ageing in bottle.
Tasting Notes: The nose is intense, floral with yellow fruits, hints of ethereal; on the palate is fresh, intense and fruity
Cantina Orsogna is a (very) progressive cooperative of thirty one growers in Italy’s central province of Abruzzo. The company was one of the first of its kind to move to 100% organic farming back in 2002, and they are the largest Biodynamic wine producer in Italy, having been certified by Demeter since 2005. We are currently working with their fruit-forward, sometimes experimental “Lunaria” line which showcases single varietal bottlings from grapes well-suited to the climate of the coastal Terre di Chieti subregion.
