Elivià Oltrepò Pavese Pinot Grigio DOC
Pinot Grigio is easy to find all over northern Italy where fresh terrain and good temperature ranges bring out its finesse. Our vineyards are situated in Montalto Pavese, one of the most important wine regions of the Oltrepò Pavese, at an altitude of 400 metres. Montalto has the good fortune of benefiting from both a warm breeze and fresh air from the Apennines, guaranteeing a balanced ripening process, resulting in the highest technological quality and the richest aromas.
Fermentation takes place at a low temperature and lasts around 20 days. Afterwards, the wine ages for 4 to 5 months on its fine lees via the bâtonnage technique, enabling it to become even more elegant and full bodied.
