Full and fruity with a scent of white peach, quince and pink grapefruit. A pleasant and dry taste, that envelops the breadth of the structure supported by fresh acidity and a pleasant mineral flavour.
Flavour: composite and harmonic that concludes with a persistent finish.
In 1850, Count Augusto Giorgi di Vistarino was the first person to plant Pinot Noir in the Oltrepò, by importing the shoots directly from France and thus giving rise to the great sparkling wine tradition of the Oltrepò Pavese.
Since then the family has been carrying out a constant work aimed at enhancing the noble vine while respecting the territory and its vocation.
The Estate (with an extension of 826 hectares, of which 200 planted with vineyards and 100 of Pinot Noir) has a natural biodiversity, given by the organic alternation between vineyards and wooded areas, and a dry climate that represent the ideal context for the Pinot Noir.
Our range, in addition to Pinot Noir, is completed with red, white and rose wines, Charmat and Classic method sparkling wines and sweet wines.
An Estate, three centuries of history.
A universe of over 800 hectares of classic beauty, that has an extraordinary biodiversity and rich wildlife systems.
The beating heart is Villa Fornace, a splendid architectural example perfectly preserved, with the magnificent English garden that houses the orangery.
The recently renovated winery, the museum and the wine shop represent the tradition and modernity of the wine history of Rocca de’ Giorgi.
From the first year of activity up to the current generation represented by Ottavia Giorgi di Vistarino, the vision remains the same: to better interpret the noble grape variety by pursuing the highest quality while respecting the territory and its vocation.
Pairing Suggestions: The protagonists of the table are the dishes that accompany this wine, versatile and casual.
Maturation: After the static clarification, we carry out the fermentation in steel tanks and the wine stays on the fine lees until the bottling which takes place 6 months after the harvest.
