Cellar for up to 4 years. Serve chilled.

The Livon family have been making wine in Italy’s north-eastern Collio region since 1964 when founder Doriino Lovin sold lumber to afford to buy his first vineyards here. Over the years he expanded the property as and when he could, and also constructed a state-of-the-art winery. Today the winery has a reputation for producing sensational white wines from both indigenous Friuli grapes and international varieties.

The fruit for this single vineyard Pinot Grigio comes from the family’s prized Braide Grande vineyard in Dolegna del Collio which is planted on exceptional clay and marl soils. To ensure the grapes arrive at the winery in perfect condition they are harvested by hand in small boxes. Once in the winery they are macerated for 8 hours. 30% of the juice is then fermented in oak barrels with the remainder vinified in stainless steel tanks.

After fermentation is complete the young wine is kept in these barrels and tanks for a further 8 months to add polish and refinement. As you would expect from Italian Pinot Grigio, this zingy white is bursting with bright citrus and hints of green apples on the nose. On the palate there’s a mouthwatering freshness and pure, clean finish which makes this a great wine to serve as an aperitif or match for fresh seafood, grilled fish, and sushi.
