A word game between “Ramato”, meaning “copper”, and “amato”, which stands for “loved one”. It is not an Orange Wine, it is not a Rosé… It’s just Il Ramato. A Ramato style wine that conceals the freshness, texture, and charm of Pinot Grigio. Like a bridge between the worlds and interpretations of Pinot Grigio, the Ramato is able to uncover a forgotten wine pleasure.
Scarbolo is a family owned winery in the Fruili region of northern Italy. In 1960 Gino Scarbolo planted the first vines, and the winery has seen four generations of the family since. You can see the generations of wheels turning to keep the vineyard always progressing to make better wines on the label of every bottle of Scarbolo wine. At Scarbolo we follow the “SQNPI” integrated farming protocol, which is founded on respecting the principles of environmental sustainability integrating them into the high quality of the grapes.
Being awarded the certificate is the result of our commitment to orient vineyard management toward practices that are environmentally respectful, responsible, and committed, by reducing chemicals and synthetic fertilizers, and always keeping in mind that good wine is made from good, healthy grapes.
Pairing Suggestions: Perfect as an aperitif, ideal for fried fish dishes, stocafisso, lobster, grilled white meats, risotto with truffles, polenta, aged cheeses, gorgonzola etc.
Maturation: With ILRamato, we harvest the clusters at their peak ripeness and, destemmed, the grapes macerate at a low temperature. This way, the must is able to extract the iconic color from the grapeskins ahead of fermentation, hence maintaining a contemporary brightness and fragrance.
