Babo Pinot Grigio 2018


100% Friulain Pinot Grigio sourced from San Martino al Tagliamento, near Pordenone. The vineyards, planted in the late ’90s, are situated at the base of the Alps and the soils are a mix clay and gravel from alluvial deposits. The Pinot Grigio from Friuli generally has more layers than, say, the Veneto and Trentino. Fruit is destemmed, crushed and sits in press for about 24 hours prior to the start of pressing. Ferment is then carried out in stainless steel and remains on lees for five months prior to bottling.
