St. Michael Eppan Pinot Grigio Sanct Valentin 2020 - Magnum 1.5L

Sanct Valentin Pinot Grigio was first produced in 1986 when for the first time, after selecting the first grapes from selected vineyards, it was vinified in small wooden barrels. The expressive Sanct Valentin Pinot Grigio is highly appreciated with its smoothly integrated acidity, power and fullness. It is one of Italy's most gifted pinot grigio wines and promises an excellent drinking experience even after many years of aging. The color of the wine is deep straw yellow. On the nose, it has fruity aromas of apple, pear and fine vanilla. On the palate, the wine is strong in character with its pleasant acidity and nuances of toast.
The grapes grow at 420 to 600m altitude in selected vineyards in Eppan, facing southeast and southwest. The terroir consists of limestone gravel. Manual harvesting of the pinot grigio takes place in mid-September.Fermentation, malolactic fermentation and development on lees in barrique tonneaux. Assembly after nearly a year, followed by at least six months of further aging in stainless steel tanks.
