Velante Bertani Pinot Grigio
Discover Velante Bertani Pinot Grigio:
Located near Verona, in the province of Veneto in northeast Italy, Casa Vinicola Bertani is one of the most important and influential wine producers in the region. Bertani produces a full range of classic Veneto wines and has a reputation as a producer since the beginning. Bertani was founded in 1857 by brothers Gaetano and Giovan Battista Bertani, successful wine merchants who believed that producing quality wine was the key to the future. The Bertani family has invested in some of the best vineyards in the province and in the production of their own wines. As a result, unlike most other local producers, Vinicola Bertani owns its own vineyards and can control the entire winemaking cycle from start to finish. Bertani owns vineyards and wineries in Valpanten, as well as land in the Soave region and nearby Lake Garda. The company’s headquarters are located in former cellars in Grezzana, northeast of Verona, where historic vineyards are still preserved and where winemaking, aging and bottling work take place.

Discover Pinot Grigio Wines
Pinot Grigio is a white wine grape variety with grey, white red, or purple skins. (Thus the French word 'gris,' meaning 'gray.') Because the Pinot Grigio and Gris grapes are considered to be genetically fragile, color constancy is not a strong point (as seen in the photo below by Navarro Vineyards).
Pinot Grigio wines that are more ripe tend to have more tropical and tree fruit tastes, while grapes that are less mature have more pronounced citrus fruit notes. Almost all Pinot Grigio is produced as a dry white wine with a light to medium body. The finest Pinot Grigio wines are crisp, refreshing, and well balanced overall, with mild acidity and rich fruit flavors, regardless of the body.
Some varieties may have more acidity than others, depending on quality and manufacturing techniques. Especially in wine-growing areas with a cold environment.
Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris are the same grape variety, but the Italian name is Pinot Grigio and the French designation is Pinot Gris.
Italian Pinot Grigio is known for its citrus and tree fruit tastes, while French Pinot Grigio is known for its tropical fruit aromas. This is dependent on a number of variables, including terroir, harvest period, and vinification styles.
