This wine is picked by hand from the single vineyard plot in Trentino and is the only wine produced by Ca’Montini. Vinified in stainless steel and aged in tank before bottling.
Using fruit sourced from one of the most highly-prized vineyards, Ca’ Montini is proud to present a premium Pinot Grigio DOC that truly showcases the quality and winemaking history of Trentino.
The vineyard lies in a small valley called by the locals “Valfredda” or cold valley.
The grapes are naturally protected from the elements by the surrounding mountainside and the perfect East-West exposure ensure the ideal conditions for the ripening of Pinot Grigio.
This project was conceived under the direction of internationally acclaimed winemaker Riccardo Cotarella and his technical staff.
Made by Riccardo Cotarella, one of Italy’s most successful oenologists and winemakers. He has been named Winemaker of the year by Wine Enthusiast (2001), Best Italian winemaker by Gambero Rosso (2001), Best Italian wine maker by Italian Association of Sommeliers (2002) and “one of the best in Italian winemaking” (Wine Spectator). The influential wine writer Robert Parker Jr. (Wine Advocate) has even named him “one of the most influential wine personalities in the world”.
More about shape and texture than flavour. Minerality, oyster shells, almond skins and perhaps some subliminal Nashi pear. Spongy in the mouth. Feels good. Difficult to rate but will enhance a lot of different dishes without hogging the limelight. I like it. – Jeremy Pringle – Winewilleatitself
