Bianco Friuli DOC
50% Pinot Grigio, 50% Sauvignon Blanc
Bertani’s impact on Veneto wine making, particularly in Amarone production, is so considerable that ‘Bertani’ and ‘Amarone’ are nearly synonymous. Their 150+ year history is dotted with groundbreaking initiatives and royal accreditation. While respectful of their past, Bertani strives towards innovation, using progressive techniques and equipment allied with extensive experience and a deeply felt respect for tradition to provide wines of uncompromising quality.TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES
The grapes are grown in the Romans d’Isonzo area, which has gravelly soil. Double Guyot trained vines are an average age of 10-15 years old. The harvest is done at the beginning of September.WINEMAKING
Fermentation takes place off the skins in steel tanks at a temperature of around 60°F. The wine only sees stainless steel until bottling, followed by three months’ bottle maturation.TASTING NOTES
The typical aromas of the Sauvignon are tangy on the nose; sage, ripe peach, elderflower and green pepper. The Pinot Grigio dominates on the palate, with good balance between tanginess and crisp acidity. A lingering aftertaste. Perfect as an aperitif, it goes well with salads, delicate flavored pasta dishes and white meat.
