Fidora, Pinot Grigio Lignum
|Varietal||100% Pinot Grigio|
|Taste||A multi-layered and textural Pinot Grigio with creamy pear, apple and lychees, thanks to malolactic fermentation, and an echo of vanillin oak but still fresh, dry and mineral. Harmonious, elegant, refined.|
This wild-fermented Pinot Gris was matured in French oak 500 liters barrels remaining on lees for 10 months resulting in increased weight, richness and creamy mouth-feel creating a textural and savoury element to the wine.
Minimal sulphur was used prior to bottling.
After handpicking, the grapes are destemmed and macerated in stainless steel for a night before they undergo fermentation using only indigenous yeasts.
The Fidora family are now into their fourth generation of wine producers.
In 1974, Guido Fidora decided to convert the family business to organic farming.
In the 70’s people had completely lost touch with how they all used to grow wines before all of the chemicals they were now using ever existed.
For nearly a century chemicals have been promoted as the best and fairest way to grow a crop. So to turn to organic farming without any guidelines, they very much had to learn as they worked the land.
Tenuta Civranetta, which is one of four estates owned by the Fidora family, is one of the oldest examples of an environment cultivated with organic farming in Italy and is the oldest in the region of Veneto.
His grandson Emilio, now at the helm of the estate, continued Guido’s legacy and converted the farm to biodynamic. Their respect for the land, environment and tradition shows in their wines that are pure and genuine.
