Pinot Gris grapes from vineyards in Russian River and Alexander Valleys combine to create a wine with incredible concentration and intensity of flavors. A cool, dry year from January to August ensured the vines set a light, small-berried, intense crop. September and October were mild, with hot weather towards the end of October that ripened fruit quickly. Overall, this had to be one of the fastest harvests remembered, with yields slightly lower than average.
With its delicate aromas and delicious flavors, Ferrari-Carano’s third vintage of Pinot Grigio is a perfect white wine for sipping. Sister wine to the popular Ferrari-Carano Sangiovese-blend red wine SIENA, their 2007 Pinot Grigio offers green apple, citrus and white peach on the nose, complemented by clean, crisp honeydew melon and lime flavors. The pleasant mouthfeel is balanced by a light citrus finish that is delicate yet vibrant.
