Producer Fresh, appealing varietal wines from the Dolomite foothills around Arco,
north of Lake Garda. The vines are grown and the wines made by
Mezzacorona, which explains the superb quality-price ratio.
Vineyard Situated at least 200 metres above sea level and with a mild climate, the
vineyards of the lower Adige valley are well suited to the production of
crisp, medium-bodied wines. The grapes were harvested by hand.
Winery The grapes were fully destemmed and then gently crushed, before
being cooled and undergoing several hours’ cold maceration at around
6°C. Following this, alcoholic fermentation was carried out in tank at 15-
18°C and when complete the wine then spent a short period ageing on
its lees.
Taste Mezzacorona’s high-altitude vineyards have here produced a superior
example of Pinot Grigio Rosé. Jam-packed with the ripe strawberry
and raspberry fruit you would expect from this variety, but with far more
intensity and structure than the norm. The finish is long, lingering and
clean, with a fine acidity.
