Background

The Specogna family now has 20 hectares of vineyard on the hill of Rocca Bernarda in the heart of the Colli Orientali DOC zone. Their vineyards are beautifully tended by Michele and Cristian Specogna, so the quality of the fruit they bring to the winery is impeccable.

As a result, they are keen to get as much flavour as possible from the grapes. Due to the quality of the fruit, they are able to macerate the skins in the must for 18 to 24 hours prior to fermentation. This gives a Pinot Grigio that is 'ramato' (coppery) in colour and a wine that displays a remarkable intensity of flavour. Specogna's other wines have a similar intensity and personality..
