Masi Masianco Pinot Grigio delle Venezie DOC 2017, Italy

Masi’s most up-to-date Italian white is also the estate’s white ‘Supervenetian,’ a wine of great personality. Masianco Pinot Grigio delle Venezie blends the elegant, fruity and rich aromas of this grape, cultivated in Friuli, with the structure, poise and body of the native Verduzzo, picked slightly over-ripe and mature. Pinot Grigio comes from the Castions di Strada vineyard. Verduzzo is harvested end of September, then further ripened on racks for 3 weeks to enhance concentration. After short cryomaceration, the Verduzzo is fermented in stainless steel tanks for 3 months and transferred to barriques where it completes malolactic. Deep straw yellow in colour with golden reflections. The nose stands out for finesse and elegance, showing a good bouquet of ripe fruit and delicate aromas of honey and vanilla. Soft and refreshing on the palate. Long, dry finish. Grapes: Pinot Grigio, Verduzzo. Aging: fermented in stainless steel tanks for 3 months and transferred to barriques where it completes malolactic.
