CORTE GIACOBBE - PINOT GRIGIO 2021
Appears a luminous straw yellow with green highlights. On the nose, beguiling scents of blossoms and fruit, such as syrupped pear and banana. In the mouth, fine mineral salt-acidity balance, with a lengthy, vibrant vein of earthy minerality, gift of its valley terroir of origin.
The vineyards are located in the hilly area of Roncà, on the slopes of the two extinct volcanoes, Calvarina and Crocetta, east of Soave. Captivating on the nose for the freshness of flowers and fruit such as pear syrup and banana, on the palate, good salty-acid balance, long persistence and distinct minerality due to the valley of origin.

PAIRING Entrees, lighter meats, fish
The vineyards surrounding the ancient Corte Giacobbe are located on the slopes of two extinct volcanoes, Calvarina and Crocetta: soils generally of volcanic origin, composed of lava and tuff, rich in microelements.
In the estate's own vineyards, Garganega, Durella, Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio vines are cultivated under the careful care of the Dal Cero family.
The particular geological history characteristically influences the mineral and organic constitution of the berries, determining the strong aromatic and mineral characteristics of the grapes and the pleasant sapidity of the wine.
Specifically, Corte Giacobbe's Crus wines are the fruit of vineyards grown on the volcano's summit in soil characterised by high mineral content.
