Valle, Friuli

From the renowned Rosazzo vineyard in Colli Orientali, this Pinot Grigio is hand-picked and fermented at low temperature to retain it freshness, elegance and balance. It has a nose of summer meadow flowers, sweet spice, and green fruits (rose petals and Kiwi with a dusting of cinnamon if you care to be poetic). Unlike so many cheap examples – it has the potential to age and improve. Best served with consommè, seafood risotto, soufflè and other delicate egg-based dishes and sweet-cured San Daniele ham from the region.

The Valle estate

One of the region's pioneers of cold fermentation techniques and the use of stainless steel vats to maintain the freshness of delicate white varietals, Gigi Valle is also a stalwart champion of indigenous local grapes like Ribolla Gialla, (Tocai) Friulano and Refosco. The winemaking here, overseen by Paolo, Gigi's son is a great testament to both innovation and tradition - put simply: Valle make old wines better.
