Bollini Pinot Grigio Rosato 2021 DOC Rose Wine – Trentino, Italy
GRAPES: 100% Pinot Grigio
VINIFICATION AND AGEING
Grapes are de-stemmed and left to macerate for 72 hours, in order to extract the typical light rosé colour from the skins; thereafter the grapes are softly pressed and the juice undergoes the fermentation with temperature control.
Once the fermentation is over, the wine is matured on the fine lees for a few months, to enrich it with complex secondary aromas.
Pale rosé in the colour, fruity and floral on the nose, with hints of pear and acacia blossoms. Dry and delicate on the palate, well balanced, with a pleasant fresh note.
90 points – James Suckling
Excellent as an aperitif, this wine fits well with grilled fish, white meats and light dishes. Serve lightly chilled at 10-12°C.
The story of Bollini began in 1979, when Neil and Maria Empson – who pioneered Italy’s quality wine exports a decade earlier – created their own label from the Alpine foothills of Friuli and Trentino. Their purpose was to showcase the excellence and consistency of noble international varieties in the cool northeastern regions of Italy, while maintaining accessible price points.
The Empsons have always relied on teams of top professionals and two state-of-the-art wineries, one in each appellation. Prime, hillside locations, ideal day/night temperature swings, and the complexity and minerality that come from alluvial geo-history, all contribute to achieving concentrated, highly extracted fruit. Vinified to the strictest quality standards, the wines are the perfect example of the Empson criteria for excellence.
