Label Santa Francesca Pinot Grigio

VINIFICATION:

Tenimenti Santa Francesca is perched high in the hills overlooking the spectacular town of Orvieto. Nestled among 300 Ha of their own vineyards, the new winery was built in 2011 and has all the bells and whistles that one would expect.
A significant factor in the why the wines display uncommon fruit concentration and freshness is the altitude; and consequent diurnial temperature variations, at which the fruit is grown.
From Pinot Grigio to Orvieto to Sagrantino di Montefalco, these new wines are well worth seeking out.
