Regional Information

Pinot Grigio is the quintessential Italian white wine and has been a part of the Veneto landscape in north east Italy for centuries. The Veneto is a diverse region, nestling in the foothills of the Alps, with vines stretching from Venice to Verona and surrounding the shores of the beautiful Lake Garda. The Pinot Grigio grapes for Canaleto are selected from vineyards on hillside slopes in the northern part of the Veneto. The combined influence of the mountains and Lake Garda give a perfect micro-climate for grape growing, with cool nights and days, which are not too hot. Winters are mild with a low risk of frost in spring and autumn, and cooling breezes from the lake temper the summer heat.

Current Vintage

Vinification Details

The grapes are de-stemmed and very gently soft pressed in a pneumatic press. Prior to fermentation the juice is chilled to allow a natural separation of sediment and juice, after which selected yeasts are added to initiate fermentation. Fermentation is followed by racking and approximately 40 days on the lees. The wine is allowed to rest for a while before bottling. Fermentation takes place off the skins in temperature controlled conditions not exceeding 18°C in stainless steel for approximately 15 days.

Unreliable

I bought a bottle of this last weekend. It seemed a pleasant light summer wine. Bought another bottle for this weekend. This bottle did taste really harsh, I finished a couple of glasses but that was it. It gave me a dreadful headache too.
