Vineyard & Winemaking Notes
The D.O.C. Appellation (Denomination of Controlled Origin) is a guarantee that Candoni Pinot Grigio is produced with only the best grapes cultivated in the Veneto Region of northeast Italy. Our vineyard yield is very low, which is a result of our quest for quality over quantity. Our winemaking philosophy is to emphasize the grape’s pure varietal taste without the masking effects of oak. The climate helps to maintain a balance between acidity and sugar levels and allows the grapes a long, slow growing season, making our Candoni Pinot Grigio of excellent quality.
A delicious accompaniment to fish, seasonal pasta dishes, or chicken. It can also stand alone as an aperitif on a hot summer’s day.
How to Serve
Pour into ample but not oversized goblets at a temperature of around 46.4° F- 50° F.
This wine should be served young for the greatest appreciation of its fragrance and taste, and stored in a dark, cool, damp cellar.
The Veneto region is located in Northeastern Italy, lying between the foothills of the Alps and the top of the Adriatic Sea. This ribbon of land, nestled among picturesque vineyards, is home to charming cities such as Verona, Vicenza, Padova, Treviso, and Veneto’s crowning beauty: Venice.
Veneto offers numerous combinations of microclimates, thanks to the Dolomites blocking cold temperatures from central Europe, indigenous grapes and wine traditions that hold their own in spectacular fashion. No other region boasts such winemaking diversity in such close proximity.
From hearty reds to fragrant sparklers, these radically unique expressions are representative of what drives Italy’s global wine success. Geography might help explain why this region is home to so many individual pockets of wine but it is especially the agricultural and entrepreneurial spirit of its people to make this area one of the leading wine making region in the world.
