This lush Pinot Grigio from Northern Italy was the only Italian white wine in the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2015. The Torre Rosazza estate is one of the finest in Friuli, known for its beautifully elegant white wines, including this award winning Pinot Grigio. The 18th century Palazzo De Marchi, sits proudly atop the Rosazzo hill in the municipality of Manzano, surrounded by 200 acres of prime vineyards on two splendid, naturally-terraced amphitheaters that enjoy permanent sunshine. Consulting enologist Riccardo Cottarella is overseeing all phases of the production process, from the vineyards to the winery. The grapes are picked by hand and whole grapes are placed in the press, where they are softly squeezed. Traditional white-wine vinification in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature is carried out followed by partial malolactic fermentation. The wine aged on the lees for about 6 months in steel tanks. Wine Spectator in addition to making it one of their Top 100 selections scored it 90 points saying "This creamy, medium-bodied version is framed by finely cut acidity that focuses the rich minerality and flavors of guava, star fruit, pickled ginger and oak spice. Lingering finish. Drink now through 2022."
