2013 Uvaggio Zelo Bianco
70% Pinot grigio
10% Moscato giallo
90% Napa Valley - Carneros
Inspired by the contemporary blends from Italy’s Northeast, we returned to our Napa roots to craft our domestic interpretation, which resulted in this unique Pinot grigio based blend.
The mature fruit was harvested in mid-to-late Sept, resulting in a very flavorful and expressive wine, due primarily to extended hang-time.
All the lots were cool fermented and without malo-lactic conversion. Post fermentation there was one racking, followed by a light fining, then racked again and filtered prior to bottling.
Bottled in February 2014; 13.3% alcohol, pH 3.46 & TA 5.6 g/l
Broad and lush; with floral aromas of honeysuckle and freesia, plus a hint of spice; fruit flavors of meyer lemon and bosc pear; a long, supple finish.
