Jermann Pinot Grigio IGT 2018 - Wine

Tasting Notes

An intense straw yellow colour with a faint tinge of old rose. Beautifully pure, elegant, floral Pinot Grigio. The bouquet is full and fruity. A touch of almonds and vanilla, a hint of fruit and spice on the palate, a smooth and dry full-bodied white which is particularly harmonious and accessible.

Production Notes

The soil where the vines of Pinot Grigio are planted is predominantly marlstone and sandstone belonging to the Flysch formation from the Eocene era that gave rise to a rocky substrate that later formed the characteristic ponca of the Collio area. The aspect is southwest and northeast. Yields are kept low in order to increase concentration and are harvested at the optimum ripeness / acidity balance. Only small volumes are ever made and this enables Jermann to control the quality of each individual parcel by tending it meticulously throughout the year. Through very careful vinification of the individual parcels Jermann is able to ensure that the maximum amount of elegance and transparency is given space to show itself in the finished wine.

Producer Profile

The region of Friuli boasts an increasing number of prominent wineries, but Silvio Jermann remains the shining star. He owns forty acres of estate vineyards that surround the family home in Farra Isonzo, where he created a new breed of big, fruity, ageworthy Friulian wines (outside the regulations set by the DOC). Capo Martino and Dreams have distinguished themselves as two of Italy's greatest and best-known white wines. In 1881 Anton Jermann, the founder, left the Austrian wine-growing region of Burgenland and, later, the vines of Slovenia to put down roots in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Here he continued his winery business, and from the 1970s Silvio Jermann combined genius and imagination took the company to undreamed-of success in wine circles, both in Italy and worldwide. Today Jermann estate extends over 150 hectares of which 130 hectares are vineyards and 20 hectares are given over to seed and horticultural crops. This is a company that interacts with the world every day, but its greatest attention is always reserved for the things that make a wine great. Silvio Jermann's wines have often been described as the finest white wines in Italy. 2006 saw the unveiling of their new state-of-the art winery which has been beautifully designed to sit in a bowl amongst their vineyards. It is the talk of the region and very much indicative of Silvio Jermann's forward-thinking approach to winemaking. Silvio uses unique blending methods prior to vinification to produce highly-prized wines with floral aromas and a piercing varietal character along with an elegance which will only become finer through age. Silvio's sons Michele and Felix are the latest family members to carry on the tradition.
