For this offering, we make our way over to the town of Tezze in the municipality of Vazzola, located in the central-eastern area of ​​the Province of Treviso, Italy. Nestled in the shadow of Northern Italy’s Dolomites and the heart of Veneto’s famed Treviso District, Bonotto delle Tezze is a winery with ancient and historical ties to Venetian winemaking traditions. Founded over 600 years ago near the tiny hamlet of Malanotte, the estate was known for centuries as the primary wine supplier to the region’s aristocracy. In modern times, the Bonotto family’s growing efforts have become internationally known, and their focus on the cultivation and preservation of the ancient Raboso grape has established the winery as one of the most vital contributors to Northern Italy’s wine industry.

For the Pinot Grigio, there is a short maceration (the process where the phenolic materials, tannins, coloring agents, and flavor compounds, are leached from the grape skins, seeds, and stems into the must.) with the skins and then fermentation in steel vats at a low temperature. Once the wine is ultimately settled, it is bottled and then released onto the market.

This wine is straw yellow in color, with fresh and floral aromas reminiscent of freshly picked fruit. Properly aromatic with good structure to accompany a beautiful and fresh drinkability that is meant for consumption now.
