Soaking crushed grapes with their skins gives this Friulian Pinot Grigio its luminous color and unusual depth of flavor.
What You Need To Know
Top Pinot Grigios from northern Italy have a minerally intensity that’s worlds apart from massproduced versions. This example from Friuli—the northeast region hemmed in by the Austrian Alps and Slovenia—comes from thirty-something vintner Valter Scarbolo, who farms 60 acres of vineyards outside Urdine. He makes the Ramato XL from old vines and picks the grapes by hand, and then, after soaking the crushed grape skins and juice together, ferments the wine in a mix of tanks and oak casks. The technique preserves the grape’s subtle fruit flavors and adds silkiness.
