Luisa
Pinot Grigio Isonzo del Friuli DOC
Friuli Venezia Giulia

 

The vinification in white, the almost complete absence of sulphuric acid and the surveillance of the temperature of fermentation result in a fruity, complete and fascinating wine of elegant freshness. Isonzo del Friuli is on the same latitude of the Southern Borgogna, and of the Cognac area in France and of the Williamette Valley in Oregon. The 210 acres of Luisa vineyards are in the flood plain at the beginning of the Collio and the Carso.
