Furlani - 2018 Macerato Pinot Grigio Frizzante
This product is currently sold out.
High up in the Italian Alps, soaring above 700m altitude, are the tiny parcels of vines tended by Matteo Furlani – a fourth-generation wine grower and maker in the village of Povo, above Trento. FOUR GENERATIONS!! Chemicals were never used by his predecessors, and Matteo has taken this standard even further by working biodynamically.
This Pinot Grigio is grown on surface clay over schist and broken granite (known as 'sasso dolomitico'). It was fermented on skins for 10 days with native yeasts and no temperature control. Frozen grape must was added for refermentation in the bottle, stylistically hovering between a Champagne and pet-nat – what they call 'Metodo Interrotto'. No added sulphur, undisgorged. Such a joyous, juicy sparkling; makes you happy :)
