A Hidden Jewel – il gioiello nascosto
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.
About the Vineyard
The grapes are hand-picked from the Mezzacorona vineyards and delivered to the winery within a few hours to preserve freshness. They are completely de-stemmed, crushed and then cooled to about 46°F, followed by cold maceration for a few hours. This technique allows a perfect light extraction of pink color along with consistent taste and quality profile throughout the shelf-life of the wine. Here they are gently pressed with pneumatic presses. Then, the must is left for an entire night to clarify. The next day the yeast is added and the alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature (60-65°F) is initiated. At the end of the fermentation the run-off takes place and the wine is left on the lees before bottling.
