Details

Conti Formentini was created in 1520 by the Formentini family; Venetian Counts, when they purchased the existing castle in the town of San Floriano del Collio, the highest hilltop village in eastern Friuli and the surrounding feudal lands. Wine from the vineyards surrounding the Castello Formentini and the hills of San Floriano have been made here ever since and the Formentini cellar is considered one of the oldest in Collio.

Today, the descendants of the Formentini family still owns and manages the estate. Collio Goriziano (or Collio DOC) is an Italian wine region in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, located in the northernmost part of the Province of Gorizia, bordering Slovenia. The name Collio comes from the Italian term for hills, colli. With vines planted since pre-Roman time, Collio is a historic region renowned for its cooler climate and vines planted on rolling hillside across this mountainous region, dominated by white varietals.

Selected from vines growing at around 250m height, their Pinot Grigio is aged on its lees for about 6 months to add depth and richness. It offers an ample and pervasive perfume with an engaging fragrance of wild honey, walnut husks and dry flowers. It is dry, smooth and creamy on the palate and offers a fresh, harmonic flavour with a very persistent finish of pears and fruit with ripe yellow flesh.

Conclusion: A beautiful Pinot Grigio, intense and flavorful and deeply aromatic.
