Description

Pinot Grigio (known as Ruländer or Grauburgunder in German) has been at home in Alto Adige since the nineteenth century. The first “Pinot Gris” was introduced from Burgundy by Archduke Johann of Austria in 1852. In lower areas around Kurtatsch, the Pinot Grigio develops a mild acidity, while the high alcohol and extract content contribute to strength and flavour. After the harvest, the grapes are subject to white vinification at controlled temperatures in stainless steel.

TASTING NOTES

This Pinot Gris unites the potency and extract content found in the valley with the elegant freshness and minerality of the mountains, highlighting all its class and its creamy softness on the palate. Pinot Grigio Cortaccia has a bright yellow colour. It is a fresh white wine, rich in extract and the calcareous soils of Cortaccia's steep slopes favour delicate mineral aromas, sometimes even a fiery varietal perfume of gooseberries, lime-tree flowers and acacia blossoms from the lime. We suggest serving it at 10-11 °C. Its aging potential is estimated up to 2-3 years.

FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS

Cortaccia's Alto Adige DOC Pinot Grigio is a great white wine to pair with mushroom, boiled fish, seafood and fish soup.

Winery

Cantina Cortaccia

Following a serious crisis in the wine sector, on 1900, May the 13rd, 42 wine makers of Kurtatsch decided to make the first general meeting of the Social winery.
Until that time the grapes were sold wholesale, carrying it with oxcarts to Cornaiano and employing a whole day to convert ten hectoliters of grapes that later, once processed, would reach different markets, including foreign ones.
At that time, there was no retail trade and it was until the end of the First World War to record the sale of the first bottle of wine.
