Cellar for up to 4 years. Serve chilled.

Tunella was founded in the 1960s by farmer Min Zorzettig, but it was only in the 1990s that the family revamped the winemaking facilities and reduced production to prioritise quality over quantity. Min’s grandchildren have replanted many of the estate’s vineyards on steep terraces on the eastern Friuli hills which act as sun traps. The vines here are carefully tended by hand and yields are kept low, highlighting the natural character of the grapes and the unique marl and sandstone soils which are locally known as “ponca”.

This fresh and elegant Pinot Grigio is typical of the Tunella style. It’s crafted from fruit harvested manually from estate vineyards which is gently pressed and destemmed in the winery. The must is then fermented with indigenous yeast in stainless steel vats followed by a long period of ageing on the lees over the winter to add extra complexity and polish.

Fragrant acacia blossom and tropical fruit dominate on the nose while the first sip reveals a mouthwatering acidity, light body, and pure, clean finish with delicate citrus and green apple flavours. The crisp profile makes this a great aperitif or accompaniment for seafood, sushi, grilled fish or even spicy Asian dishes.
