Cantina Terlan Pinot Grigio
This product is sold out
A brilliant PG with incredible focus and length. Good weight in the mouth with green apples, peach and lychee balanced by excellent acidity which keeps it vibrantly refreshing. Drink now, or cellar it for years to come for added development.
Manual harvest and selection of the grapes; gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks, aging on the lees in steel tanks for 5-7 months.
Cantina Terlano is well known in Italian wine drinking circles for producing Italy’s longest lived white wines. Many memorable wines from the 1950s and 1960s, which rank amongst the greatest white wines of the world, were made here. Located in the heart of the Terlan wine-growing region and founded in 1893, it is one of the oldest Alto Adige cooperatives. At that time, 24 growers set themselves the goal of joint production and sales marketing. Recognition and prosperity blossomed from there. Today Terlano has approximately 100 members farming about 150 hectares and is unashamedly a quality focussed co-operative.
