2021 Pinot Grigio
The estates history dates back to 1648 when the Roman Empire awarded 600 hectares to the Locatelli family. Nearly 400 years later and Marta Locatelli has taken the reigns, continuing the tradition of sustainable farming, including 75 hectares of grape vines including some of the rarest varieties in Italy.
The Villa Locatelli line is dynamic, suitable for every occasion, expressing the freshness and liveliness of the Friuli Isonzo DOC area.
These 22 hectares of Pinot Grigio were planted in 1990 and 2007 on a stoney red clay rich in aluminum and iron oxides.
A short, cold maceration and slow fermentation preserves the wines delicate flavours. The wine is then left to rest in stainless steel tank for 5 months.
This Pinot Grigio pours straw yellow and demonstrates floral notes mixed with rich fruit aromas of apricot and peach and a subtle chalkiness speaks to the wines sense of place. Dry, medium-bodied and well-balanced.
