2021 Castel Firmian Pinot Grigio

6 bottles

In stock.

Having spread itself around the globe, there are some locations where Pinot Grigio seems to be more at home, or better understood, than elsewhere. The Trentino DOC at the foot of the Italian Alps is definitely on that short list. This wine is produced by the well-regarded Mezzacorona co-operative, where the Castel Firmian label represents the most refined wines of their diverse offer. All fruit is handpicked, with less than ideal grapes being de-classified to more entry-level wines. Traditional vinification is employed for this wine. This includes brief skin contact to increase structure and richness. The Castel Firmian Pinot Grigio tends to have an attractive mid-weight straw yellow colour on release. The aromas are quite distinct, with clear notes of white fleshed fruit blended with those of chamomile and herbs. The flavours follow the nose, with reasonably full body and good fruit weight followed by a dry and balanced, long aftertaste, all framed by a measured, delicate acidity.

Vegan Friendly.

Floral, toast and spicy nose. The palate is tight and citrusy with juicy acidity, a mineral edge and a long, refreshing finish. Pretty impressive.

There are plenty of good Pinot Grigios made locally, so why venture so far? Well, perhaps the question should be, why not go with the original version when you can? Castel Firmian is the selection of the top wines from the respected Italian cooperative, Mezzacorona. The grapes for this wine come from the Adige Valley at the foothills of the Dolomites. There is brief skin contact to increase complexity. Lemon/straw in colour, the aromas weave through spice notes, pears, citrus, minerals and a hint of orange rind. The palate is pleasingly soft with a line of acidity running the length. The wine is mid-length but the intensity never flags with good balance. Terrific drinking over the next 2-3 years so if you want to see what an original looks like, this is your chance.
