Soft, round fruit fills the mouth with ripe, juicy
flavors. A long finish glides into flavors of ripe
apples and lichee nuts. A wine to be enjoyed alone,
as an apéritif, or with shellfish, fowl and light meals
that include vegetarian dishes.
The Pinot Grigio vineyards of BARONE FINI
are 25 to 30 years old. Grape picking is manual;
all blemished clusters are discarded. Selected
grapes are taken to the excellent, state-of-the-art
cooperative winery, where they are put through soft,
cold crushing. Juice is then divided into several
units, each undergoing a different temperature controlled
fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
The result, in effect, is several distinct wines in
progress. After reaching equilibrium, juice sections
are skillfully blended by our winemakers into the
final BARONE FINI Pinot Grigio.
One of the top research centers for all aspects of
vinegrowing and winemaking is the Instituto Agrario
Provinciale at San Michèle al Adige, established in
1847 by Emperor Franz Joseph. Within walking
distance of the winery, this superb research facility is
widely used by their winemakers to ensure outstanding
Pinot Grigio quality vintage after vintage.
