Pinot grigio


Produtction area

The "Pinot" vines are originally from the Borgogna and they arrived in Trentino from Germany around the beginning of the last century. Here they found their ideal habitat in the cold-temperate climate. The Pino Grigio from the Maso Poli Winery is produced from grapes cultivated on the hillside around Pressano at an altitude of 300 to 400 metres above sea level. The soil is well balanced and clayey, of morainic-alluvial origins. The single pergola and the lire are the training methods used. The latter was used in ancient times in Trentino when it was known as FORBESI.

Grape variety and vinification

Pinot Grigio : it produces a small, compact, wing-shaped cluster with a copper coloured grape. An excellent exposure in a southeasterly direction and a limited production are the ideal elements for good ripening. The grapes, handpicked and carefully selected, are gently crushed for the traditional vinification process. Thermo-controlled fermentation is followed and finally the wine is left to refine in yeast for 7 months. About 40% of the production is fermented in small French-oak barriques and tonneaux.
