Wine Maker Notes
Bollini Pinot Grigio is produced at vinification facilities near the city of Trento from hand picked grapes grown in superbly exposed, meticulously cultivated hillside vineyards. Overseen by consulting oenologist Franco Bernabei and styled according to the specifications of Neil Empson, the wine is crafted by winemakers trained at the nearby Istituto Agrario Provinciale di San Michele all'Adgio, renowned for its oenological research. Production begins with an immediate pressing of the fruit followed by a cold settling of the must for 48 to 60 hours. Vinification is carried out in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 18° to 20°C (65° to 68°F) for 20 to 25 days to preserve the fresh, varietal character of the fruit, followed by a full malolactic fermentation. A fining and sterile filtering precede bottling.
