Our Notes: The creamy texture and strawberry color of the Sivi Pinot is the true color of the grape and on the opposite side of the spectrum as most Italian Pinot Grigios. Grapes were hand harvested from the vineyards of Belo, Cujevca, and Jez, de-stemmed, fermented for 2 weeks on the skins in 2400 liter oak vats with wild yeast. Barreled down to used French barrique for malolactic fermentation, 12 months total on the lees, and bottled unfiltered. Complex mineral tinged aromas of custard, dried stone fruits and brioche. Jean calls it his “bread and butter” wine. Incredible density and length make it an ideal winter white and well suited for hearty vegetable dishes and cheeses.

93 Points Wine & Spirits Magazine: This rose-hued pinot grigio offers the robust texture and intense flavor of a skin-contact wine without any of the harsh phenolic bitterness that often follows. The wine fermented on the skins for two weeks, picking up flavors of fresh peach and strawberry, with a peach-pit nuttiness and notes of tea and spice adding dimension. The fruit maintains delicacy and charm within the lightly chewy texture, while vibrant blood-orange acidity leaves a tangy glow.
