Tasty & Organic Italian Pinot Grigio Ramato (Pink Wine)

Wine Review of 2016 Corvezzo Terre di Marca Organic Pinot Grigio Ramato, Veneto

Score: 88/100

Pinot Grigio, related to France’s Pinot Gris grape variety (understand: “the grey Pinot”), is now a very famous and popular Italian wine style, generally coming from the North of the country, the Veneto region in particular.

The ‘Grigio’ as it’s often nicknamed, is most usually made into white wine.

But when the pinkish-skinned Pinot Grigio grapes (this is why the variety is called ‘grey’, because its skins have a grey pinkish hue) are crushed, and the juice spends time in contact with the skins (a winery process called skin-contact, or maceration), coppery hues result as well as a fuller-bodied texture.

This pink-salmon style is known in Italy as Ramato.

Veneto organic wine producer Corvezzo winery offers this Pinot Grigio under the Delle Venezie IGT appellation, made from 100% organic Pinot Grigio grapes, fermented on skins for 8 days in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

This Grigio Ramato comes in a shiny salmon-pink color, somewhat of a pale orange with pink hues to it, typical of the style.

After such a vibrant and appealing look at its appearance, the aromatic profile surprises by its apparent austerity. In place of opulent ripe red berry fruit aromas, are rather lean and slightly vegetal notes of lily and acacia leaf, only slightly sweetened by hints of peach and apricot. It’s clearly predominantly fruity and floral, but also dry-smelling, like a hay that would be full of dried flowers too, something like a pot-pourri.

The palate is very soft and creamy, featuring an oily texture on a crisp background from a good acidity. It delivers a smooth yet dry experience, providing flavors of green pear, pomegranate, and honeysuckle. It is somewhat of a big burst of opulent tropical flowers, orchid-like scented, with hints of vanilla flower, pungent oily floral notes.

Touches of phenolics tease your taste buds to the finish, making you salivate and giving a salty edge.

Overall

A tasty Ramato wine, bursting with floral notes, with a dry and savory edge, made for be paired with antipasti or entrées.

Enjoy 🙂
