Punggl

Pinot Grigio 2013

2013 was a warm year with a late harvest The fully ripe Pinot Grigio grapes were harvested in mid-September in several rounds. After being gently pressed, the must was fermented partly in larg oak barrels (12-30hl), partly in steel barrels, where the wine was aged on the lees for 8 months.

 

The hill, called a Punggl in the local dialect, is only 50 metres high and extends to the south of Magrè at between 220 and 250 metres above the sea level. The soil is a stratification of grey clay sand with a high clay content. The Mediterranean climate, with warm summers and mild winters, as well as the Ora, a warm afternoon wind from Lake Garda and the 80-year-old vines, create the ideal conditions.

 

The brilliant pale straw yellow, as well as the aromas with hints of orange, honey and crispy bread crust characterize this wine with richness and elegance. On the palate, the wine is fresh and mineral with a juicy structure and long finish. This makes the PUNGGL Pinot Grigio a great companion to intense starters, fish, and white meat.
