Unveiling the Wine:

  • Visual: The Cantine di Ora Pinot Grigio Valdadige pours a pale straw-yellow colour with subtle green reflections. This light and inviting appearance hints at the wine's crisp and refreshing character.

Beyond the Basics: A Deeper Look

The charm of Cantine di Ora Pinot Grigio Valdadige lies in its nuanced profile. Here's a closer look at the elements that contribute to this delightful wine:

  • Grapes: This Pinot Grigio is crafted entirely from Pinot Grigio grapes, also known as Pinot Gris. These grapes thrive in the cool climate and well-drained soils of the Valdadige region, resulting in wines known for their vibrant acidity and lighter body.
  • Vinification: Cantine di Ora employs meticulous winemaking techniques to preserve the delicate character of the Pinot Grigio grapes. Gentle pressing techniques extract the juice without imparting bitterness, while cool fermentation temperatures help retain the grapes' fresh fruit character.
  • Regionality: The Valdadige region plays a significant role in shaping the character of this Pinot Grigio. The cool alpine breezes and well-drained soils moderate grape ripening, leading to wines with bright acidity and a lighter body. This climatic influence is evident in the wine's refreshing and invigorating style.

Serving Suggestions:

To fully appreciate the vibrancy of Cantine di Ora Pinot Grigio Valdadige, serve it well-chilled, ideally between 8-10°C. This chilled temperature accentuates the wine's crisp acidity and refreshing fruit flavours.

Consider using chilled white wine glasses with a slight stem. The stem allows you to hold the glass by the stem, preventing your hand from warming the wine.
