DARIO PRINCIC SIVI 2016
This titanic wine, a passionate and territorially focused interpretation of an often mistreated grape when in conventional hands, is the Alpha and Omega of Pinot Grigio, imbued with true spirit by terroir, skin maceration and Dario’s masterful touch. It’s born from 60 years old vines on steeply terraced soils rich with ancient clay-limestone. Rigorously natural agriculture and wild fermentation are completed by skin contact of about 7-10 days and an elevage in large wood for no less than 30 months before being bottled with no fining, filtration and only minimal added SO2. Complex, astoundingly deep and ever-changing and vibrant: spiced rhubarb, yilang yilang and gunpowder dance with spiced marasca cherries, smoked tamarind and bergamot tea with red currants.
