Jesera

Pinot Grigio

DOC Collio

  • pinot grigio

    The wine

    Collio Pinot Grigio: a pleasant, easy-drinking, fresh, playful wine with a wide matchability and which is especially suitable for everyday consumption. These characteristics have certainly contributed to the wide diffusion of this wine throughout the world, with particularly high success in the USA and the UK.
  • The character

    It is rather difficult, however, to come across versions of quality, structure and character that still retain its liveliness and light-heartedness. The coppery Pinot Grigio ‘Jesera’ is intended to be just that: playful and easy-drinking, but nevertheless a bearer of personality and terroir.

The Wine

Also known as Pinot Gris and coming from Alsace, it spread all over the globe and is today considered an “international” grape. It is the first Italian still white wine in terms of export volumes and Italy is the largest producer in the world in terms of cultivated hectares of vines, located mainly in the Triveneto area in the North-east. This variety was born from a genetic mutation of the most celebrated Pinot Noir, which led to a change in the color of its grapes. In fact, despite its wide diffusion, few know that Pinot Grigio is a gray berry grape: its bunches have a gray-pink color tending to purplish. And this is why the resulting wine takes wonderful coppery hues if processed with a light maceration on the skins.
