Vineyard & Winemaking Notes
Our Organic Pinot Grigio is made from 100% Organically Grown Grapes grown in the unspoiled Pavia countryside in Lombardy. Our grapes are cultivated according to the method of Organic Agriculture, which is free of fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, and all other synthetic chemical substances. Candoni Organic Wines are all certified organically grown by the Italian government verification organization, “Suolo e Salute.” This wine is good for the planet and the drinker!
It pairs nicely with seafood, light pasta dishes, and cheese and cracker combinations. It is perfect as an aperitif.
How to Serve
Pour into ample but not oversized goblets at a temperature of around 46.4° F- 50° F.
This wine should be stored in a dark, cool, damp cellar and served young for the greatest appreciation of its fragrance and taste.
Pavia is located in the southwest corner of the Lombardy Region and is one of the top wine producing areas in Lombardy. Pavia is less than 70 miles away from the infamous Asti Region and has similar growing conditions, making it an ideal area to grow premium Moscato and Pinot Noir grapes.
Evidence of its viticultural heritage goes back at least 3000 years – a dated imprint of a cluster of grapes was once found on a sandstone rock in the district.
The vines benefit from an excellent microclimate (thanks to its proximity to the Po River), well-drained soils rich in clay and calcareous marl, and a terroir often compared to that of Barolo. The area is also considered the Pinot Noir capital of Italy. Although the climate here can lead to this grape ripening too early, it is well-suited to the Pinot Noir needed for the sparkling wines; picked at the early stages of skin ripeness, Pinot Noir displays a good balance of acidity and sugar required for these wines.
