Italo Cescon's Apostoli Pinot Grigio is an IGT wine produced in eastern Veneto using 100% Pinot Grigio grapes. These grapes are harvested by hand in the early morning hours of the day. They then go through a soft pressing and are fermented with selected yeasts at a controlled temperature of 59°-64° F. The wine is aged in stainless-steel tanks for 3-5 months and then in bottles for another 2-3 months.
This wine has a strong straw yellow color with an intense aroma and notes of nutmeg, peach, ripened apple and citrus. It has a dry and elegant taste, with strong hints of orange peel. It is remarkably sapid, long and harmonic.
Apostoli Pinot Grigio can be enjoyed with fish dishes, light hors d’oeuvres, vegetable soups and soft cheeses. This wine should be served between 46° - 50° F.
