Read about Bortoluzzi
Giovanni Bortoluzzi’s first career as a consultant winemaker and bottler in Friuli gave him the perfect inside knowledge of the region, allowing him to select a near-perfect site for his own vineyard. Giovanni purchased 40 hectares on the gravelly, mineral-enriched deposit of the diverted Isonzo River, sheltered by the mountains from the raw northern winds. The abundant minerals in the soil make for the grapes’ rich components and extract and strong fruity/floral nuances to the varietal character. The Pinot Grigio exudes lush floral fruit and is both mellow and fresh at the same time with notes of spring flowers and considerable weight and style at a great price.
