Paolo Rodaro Pinot Grigio 2013



Winery :Paolo Rodaro

The first evidence of the Rodaro’s as wine producers dates back to 1846 in the Kingdom of Lombardy and Veneto, and they are proud to call themselves “Countrymen from Spessa”, a perfect description for people who have successfully adopted the modern mechanisms used to work the land without ever having lost or forgotten the old ways and the all-important relationship with the land. When he’s not in the spotlight, 6th generation Paolo Rodaro, a passionate and sensitive wine-maker and wine expert, spends his time researching and experimenting what can be done with the land and the vineyards. Throughout the 50 acres of the winery’s land he makes use of quality grafts taken from both international and native varietals. The vineyards - half planted with white and half red varietals - which cover the terraced hills of the Friuli Colli Orientali wine producing area are the most talked about in the area.

They reach the cellar in perfect condition and vinification is quickly and carefully underway in order to maintain their organoleptic (sensory) properties.

Tasting Notes :The slightly golden yellow of this product is immediately noticeable and the coppery reflections provide due notice that its olfactory impact is going to be powerful There is a long-lasting note of mature melon, peach and acacia honey, whilst in the mouth it is sophisticated and intense with a dry, pleasant and sapid finish.
