Vineyard & Winemaking Notes
The D.O.C. Appellation (Denomination of Controlled Origin) is a guarantee that Candoni Pinot Grigio is produced with only the best grapes cultivated in our Estate in the north east of the Veneto region. Our vineyard yield is very low, which is a result of our quest for quality over quantity. Our winemaking philosophy is to emphasize the grape’s pure varietal taste without the masking effects of oak. The climate helps to maintain a balance between acidity and sugar levels allowing the grapes a long, slow growing season, making our Candoni Pinot Grigio of excellent quality.
Grapes are harvested when perfect ripeness balance is reached. The bunches are taken to the cellar, where they are de-stemmed and crushed, and then placed in a pneumatic press where must is separated from the skin and, once cool, left to decant. 75- 96 °F hours later, clarified must fermentation is triggered with temperature 60-64°F. Temperature is lowered to around 46-5° F when alcoholic fermentation is over in order to preserve the aromatic part.
A delicious accompaniment to fish, seasonal pasta dishes, or chicken. It can also stand alone as an aperitif on a hot summer’s day.
How to Serve
Pour into ample but not oversized goblets at a temperature of around 46.4° F- 50° F.
This wine should be served young for the greatest appreciation of its fragrance and taste, and stored in a dark, cool, damp cellar.
Nestled in the northeastern part of Italy, Veneto boasts a rich tapestry of wines, with a special emphasis on sparkling varieties, notably the renowned Prosecco crafted from the Glera grape. However, the region's viticultural landscape extends beyond sparkling wines to include a spectrum of reds such as Valpolicella, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, as well as whites like Soave, Lison, and Pinot Grigio.
With a longstanding winemaking heritage and an ideal climate fostering diverse grape cultivation, Veneto offers many options to wine lovers. Beyond its vineyards, the region's allure lies in its picturesque landscapes, historic towns such as Venice and Verona and delectable local cuisine, drawing visitors from all over the world.
