Brilliant copper, which is the natural color obtained from this grape with a short maceration on the skins. A bouquet that ranges from mimosa to jasmine, acacia, ginger, pink pepper, pear and rennet apple, all wrapped in a frame of citrus and mineral nuances.

Lively and savory mouth for a refreshing, juicy, intense and tasty sip, creamy but rightly acidic. Long and vibrant finish. The structure is good, with a very slight tannin deriving from the peel.

Most of the Pinot Grigio comes from a two hectare single vineyard named "Jesera" but is also sourced from four other neighboring vineyards. "Jesera" translates to "little lake" in Slovenian and the name of the wine is a reference to the vineyard being at the bottom of a valley next to a stream. The Pinot Grigio's color comes from a prolonged maceration, some vintages up to 24 hours. Around 10% of wine is aged in large barrels (20-27 hectoliter) with the rest in stainless steel.

Gianni, Giorgio and Giampaolo Venica have dedicated themselves to enhancing their family's long history in Friuli with the aid of continuous research and innovation. Their work leverages all of the microclimates present on their property so that they can create a "mosaic" of the various sites that Collio has to offer.
