Bonotto delle Tezze – Pinot Grigio – White Selection 

 December 1, 2020

By  rackhouse

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 in the heart of Veneto’s famed Treviso District, Bonotto delle Tezze is a winery with ancient and historic 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 in the cultivation and preservation of the ancient Raboso grape have 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 completely settled, it is bottled and then released onto the market.

This wine is straw yellow in color, 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 consuming now.
