Pinot Grigio may be perceived like an out-seasoned harvest in the middle of summer. Harvest takes place by machine at sunrise, almost at night: technology helps to drastically reduce harvest duration in order to avoid oxidation as much as possible, making the grapes reach the cellar still at night temperature (20°) instead of mid day (35 °in the shade) as it would happen with hand harvesting.
Wine perfumes are greatly effected by such early timing , preserving this way the elegance and quality built during the cool nights in Friuli. Clay soil over gravel stones generates an harmonic balance of acidity and body, that makes Pinot Grigio a high quality product, further improving in the bottle for two to three years.

Pinot Grigio
First sudden
and fragile grape
still in the last dust
of August.
Awaited adventure
of another
harvest
and anticipated sign
of the end of a season.
There will still be
a lot of mild sun
in September,
for other grapes
and other lives
walking their way.
