NOTES The company is based on the principles of organic agriculture and therefore uses only and exclusively natural fertilizers and herbicides: this determines the absolute genuineness of the wines. For the Pinot Grigio Ramato DOC, pure Pinot Grigio grapes are used, which reach the perfect degree of ripeness thanks to the local climate and the soil particularly suitable for viticulture. The "coppery" looks like a rosé wine, but it is not: it is a "coppery" white. It is obtained with maceration of the skins, longer than usual, of Pinot Grigio grapes, which having a naturally "coppery" color, transfer this particular characteristic to the wine. Unfortunately very few producers maintain this original characteristic of the grape and prefer to make a white grape that is not white.
