Tasted April 2016 - This is only the second vintage of this new wine. Charmat method. 80% Pinot Grigio and 20% Verduzzo (dried in hot loft with plenty of ventilation and then kept at 5 ºC for 3 days). Pinot Gris picked end August. Wind keeps the grapes healthy. RS 9.5 g/l, aiming for a wine with more structure than eg Prosecco. Grapey and pear aroma, has a bit of pear grain texture too, scented and grapey on the palate, gentle but with freshness on the finish. Has a nice lightly sour pear flavour. Good length and tastes relatively dry on the finish. A very interesting use of dried grapes (of which Masi are the masters).
