Pinot Grigio is indigenous to northern France. Today it is a well known Italian wine typical of the northeast area of Italy where it has replaced Pinot Bianco. In the vineyard, the grape clusters are a grey-violet colour which has evolved from the completely copper colour. Villa Rubini’s Pinot Grigio distinguishes itself by its intense fruit flavour: the goal is attained only when all of the characteristics of the mature grape can be tasted in the wine. This is achieved through an innovative vinification method that makes use of inert gases. Must preparation and pressing happen under controlled temperature and in total absence of oxygen. Villa Rubini is the first winery to employ this technology. Rather than standardizing wine, Villa Rubini’s winemaker believes that making use of select yeast highlights the individual traits and unique peculiarities of each wine.
