Welcome to northern Italy’s Trentino Valley, where the Dolomites meet the Alps – chilly breezes and sunny days here produce pristine Pinot Grigio with remarkable aromatic intensity – dialed all the way up to 11 in a stellar vintage like 2016.
The team at Concilio has been tending these mountain vineyards since 1860 and Contessa Giovanna Manci (named for a local noble woman), is their flagship white. The grapes are grown in a special, single vineyard and hand picked, ensuring only the cream of the crop makes it into the wine; lees aging for several months before bottling adds an inviting roundness to the palate.
We’re really thrilled to share the latest release with you – it sports gold from top French wine guide Gilbert & Gaillard, plus a pair of silver medals from Mundus Vini and the International Wine Challenge (where judges called it “intense, grassy … Spritzy and aromatic. Fresh elegant finish. Poised.”).
Guaranteed a surefire hit with any Italian whites fan. (To guarantee your share, you will have to order soon.)
