Toblar Pinot Grigio Ramato DOC 2020 (Friuli, Italy) "...apple, pear, chamomile..."
"The nose has floral and fruit notes such as apple, pear and wild fruit. The palate expresses itself with sweet and creamy notes in which intense fruity and persistent sensations re-emerge. Harvest by hand in boxes; Diraspa- Soft crushing and immediate cooling at 7-8 C ° 2 days of maceration on the skins (and this is the moment when the wine acquires this particular copper shade); Devatting and fermentation in steel tanks; 20% aged in 500 liter oak barrels with battonage every 10 days; 80% aged in steel and movement of the lees every 20 days; After 8 months, the two parts are united and proceed with the bottling." - Winery Notes
"When Pinot Grigio grapes are crushed and the skins are allowed to spend time with the juice, a teasing, tactile texture and coppery hue results in a distinct wine style called ramato. It comes from the word ‘rame’ which means ‘copper’ in Italian." - Decanter Magazine
"Golden bronze in colour. Aromas of stewed apples, lemon citrus and vanilla. Luxuriantly rich on a palate flavoured with pears and chamomile. A good balance is maintained between fullness, fruit and a softly bitter dryness, keeping it light and vibrant. Lovely." - Erez Gordon, Carboot Wines
