Serarossa Pinot Grigio Blush
A Pinot Grigio Blush/Rose wine from Northern Veneto.
The Pinot Grigio grapes are carefully picked up by hand in mid-September. The grapes are de-stemmed and very softly pressed. Crushed grapes are refrigerated at a temperature of 10°C and placed in a pneumatic press for about 6-8 hours to dissolve the colours of the skins in the must and to give the wine its characteristic “coppery” colour. The must is separated from the solid elements through a soft pressing of the skins and decants naturally for 12-24 hours.
After racking, selected yeasts are added to introduce alcoholic fermentation, which lasts 8-10 days at a temperature between 16-18°C. Another racking is carried out and the wine is left for about 3-4 months on fermentation lees.
Delicate and thirst quenching with aromas of strawberry, raspberry and citrus. Very floral and fresh, and some mineral notes.
Drink with white meat dishes, grilled or baked fish. Also ideal as an aperitif.
