Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie, Monte Zovo, Diego Cottini 2021
Azienda Agricola Monte Zovo, Località Zovo, Veneto
The Monte Zovo range is produced from across 140 hectares of family-owned vineyards to express the principal denominations of the Verona area - Valpolicella, Garda and Lugana – with their origins in the Valpolicella Classico area near Fumane. Diego Cottini is the principal winemaker, backed in Valpolicella by renowned consultant Riccardo Cotarella. They now own 50 hectares on the Tregnano hillside, home to some fine Amarone-producing vineyards (including the prized 12-hectare Zovolo plot) with the best orientation and suitable elevation. Diego is convinced of the importance of altitude for the production of high quality grapes; all the vineyards are between 450 – 600 metres above sea level.
Straw yellow in color. On the nose its delicacy in aromas brings in mind fresh fruit, such as peach, apple and ananas as well as yellow flowers. On the palate it is pleasant, fresh and sapid.
Grape: 100% Pinot Grigio
