The fame of Folonari is due to its exceptional skill in selecting vineyards and grapes for producing wines of consistent quality and guaranteed authenticity. Its Pinot Grigio, Soave, Chardonnay and Merlot are distributed throughout the world.
Pinot Grigio and Garganega
From selected sites in the Trentino and Veneto regions, on the hills crowning the Adige Valley (200 metres average altitude); the vines are trained by the "Pergola" (trellis) system, on well positioned, well drained, firm, alluvial soils with a yield of 13 tons per hectare.
The ripe grapes, harvested at the end of September, are vinified off-skins after a gentle crushing; the must, settled by cold natural clarification, ferments at 16-18°C using selected yeasts which enhance the varietal characteristics.
The new Pinot Grigio Garganega wine remains in stainless steel tanks until it reaches full stability and is ready for cold-sterile bottling.
Pale yellow colour; pronounced bouquet of wild flowers with a touch of honey and banana; on the palate, dry, balanced, fruity flavour with an attractive and lingering aftertaste of ripe pears.
12% alcohol vol.
Charcuterie, savoury first courses, poultry and white meats.
Serving temperature: 12-14°C.
Ready to drink, Pinot Grigio Garganega should be consumed within 2 years.
