Trovati: To be Found
Like its name, Trovati is indeed a great find for any wine-lover looking for a crisp and refreshing glass of vino to complement any setting. Trovati can be enjoyed starting as a light and dazzling aperitivo or as a delicious pairing for il pranzo (lunch) or la cena (dinner). The dry and delicate taste of the Pinot Grigio Rosé, the balanced and harmonious flavors of the Grillo, and the bold, rich, and fruity qualities of the Rosso make each of these wines an exquisite companion for every occasion.
A Hidden Jewel – il gioiello nascosto
Trovati comes from the Italian word for “found”. This word is generally connected with those unexpected things that make certain moments of life unforgettable. It’s labels feature a stylized version of the nautilus, an ancient fossil found on the Italian Peninsula, from the dolomites to Sicily – indeed we have found a few of them in our vineyard.
Another example of a found object – that brings magic to our lives. Like it’s name, Trovati is indeed a magical find for any wine lover.
Pinot Grigio Rosé
With this wine, we go back to the origins of Pinot Grigio in the Alps, to when it was grown to produce a Rosato or Rosé wine. In fact, contrary to popular belief, Pinot Grigio grapes range from green to pink to violet. The technique of producing it as a white wine is relatively recent.
About the Vineyard
Cascading from the Italian Alps, the Adige River has sculpted a bright and flourishing valley, known for the treasured vineyards etched into its hillsides. Perched at the foot of these palatial alps, the Mezzacorona vineyards provide an ideal environment for nourishing and sustaining its prized Pinot Grigio grapes. Harvested at the peak of ripeness, the grapes from this sunny alpine locale undergo a special process to ensure a perfect light extraction of pink color. They are then coaxed to create a perfectly balanced, crisp and delightful elixir that we are proud to call Trovati Pinot Grigio Rosé.
