Winemaker's Notes

Torresella Pinot Grigio is dry with bright citrus and apple flavors framed by a crisp acidity that leads to a clean, smooth finish. On the nose there is a finesse aroma of white-fleshed stone fruits, green apples and white flowers that persists on both the nose and palate. Its popularity is driven by its flexible taste profile, including medium body and fresh unoaked fruit flavors

John's Notes

Based on the fantastic response to Torresella’s Prosecco DOC Extra Dry (WineJug’s 6/3/21 feature), it was an easy decision to feature their Pinot Grigio 2018. Thanks for all of your great feedback!

Nerdy Details

Winemaker: Torresella Wines

  • Since its fruition in 1984, Torresella has produced authentic Venetian wines that reflect the estate’s strong commitment to nature
  • The local Little Egret (called garzetta) on the label speaks of our commitment to the environment

Variety: 100% Pinot Grigio

Region: Venezia, Italy

Climate/Vintage:

  • Torresella is located in Italy’s Eastern Veneto. This area is bounded by the Tagliamento River to the north, the Livenza River to the south, the Alps to the northwest, and the Venetian lagoon to the east. The mild climate presents no abrupt seasonal changes and its medium textured, clay soils have a high mineral content, making them ideal for viticulture

Viticulture:

  • We use modern techniques to preserve this unique terroir including underground irrigation systems to reduce water evaporation and use of lightweight packaging
  • Torresella’s vineyards are not far from the Venetian lagoon where grapes have been grown since the Roman era. The clay, mineral-rich soils here are the foundation to this unique microclimate where warm sea breezes from the south meet fresh, cool mountain breezes from the north
  • Soil: Clay of fluviatile and alluvial origin
  • Vine training system: Sylvoz
  • Planting density: 3,000 – 4,800 vines per hectare (1,215 – 1,945 per acre)
  • Harvest period: First half of September

Winemaking: 

  • In the cellar, the ripe grapes are soft-crushed immediately after their arrival at the winery, and settled overnight to separate the delicate juice from the solids
  • The must is cooled to 10°C (50°F) so that it becomes naturally clear; Enzymes are never used for this process as they would extract too much of a harsh texture from the naturally copper-colored Pinot Grigio skins
  • The clarified grape juice is racked to stainless steel tanks for cool fermentation at 16 – 18°C
  • Malolactic fermentation is blocked to retain the purity of the fruit and all of the wine’s naturally fresh acidity

Alcohol:  12.0%

Pairs Well With: Sushi, young cheeses, pizza with feta and roasted vegetables
