Full of citrus, pear & melon - juicy, crisp, dry and refreshing.
Tasting Notes : Made from 100% Pinot Grigio, and fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures to create a fresh, fruity and easy drinking wine, which as a style has become one of Italy`s flagship white wines. Pale and delicate lemon-green in appearance and on the nose displaying aromas of lemons, apples and white blossom. The palate is full of citrus, pear and melon. Crisp and dry, it has a well balanced acidity with a refined and lingering finish.
The company was born as a retailer in 1928 in the Veneto region for sales of wines in casks and demi-johns to restaurants and small retailers. The company is now run by the third generation and from their roots in Veneto they now have a portfolio of wines produced in some of Italy’s finest regions. Botter pride themselves on their focus of sustainability, going beyond reducing emissions, production of waste and non-renewable energy usage and taking a responsible approach for the whole production chain.
Volcanic soils and a maritime influence combine to impart a distinct elegance and mineral character upon the island`s wines. Notable for its range of local varieties with Nero d`Avola and Nerello Mascalese making reliable, fleshy red wines, whilst Catarratto, Grillo and Inzolia yield surprisingly well balanced and flavourful white wines. You will also find the more recognised grapes of Syrah and Chardonnay performing really well in this warm Mediterranean climate. However, it is the uniquely rich and mineral influenced dessert wines that are perhaps Sicily`s greatest contribution to the wine world, from Marsala to Moscato di Pantelleria and Malvasia.
Food Match : Excellent as an aperitif on a summers evening, otherwise pairs perfectly with white fish or grilled chicken.
