Corte Giara Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie 2019
Italy / Veneto
Andy's Tasting Notes
Pinot Grigio with style, depth and flavour! Smooth peach and baked pear fruit with crisp lemony acidity. Proper interest and character in this version.
The vineyards are situated in the eastern, morainic hills of Lake Garda with an elevation of 200-250 metres above sea level. The vines are planted with a south/south-west exposure on stony, well drained soils. The vines are trained by the Guyot system, with a plant density of 3,000 vines per hectare. The average age of the vines is 26 years. All this means the fruit produced is concentrated with good depth of varietal character.
Price per bottle £9.95
Corte Giara is the negociant label of renowned Veneto producer Allegrini. The wines are made by Allegrini from fruit brought in from outside their own vineyards. They have a similar stamp of quality that sets them apart from most of the Veronese wines produced at this level.
