Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes for this wine come from the Veneto region of Italy, where the Pinot Grigio grape has been cultivated for more than a century. The juice was fermented three weeks in temperature-controlled tanks. After settling, the wine was cold stabilized, filtered and bottled under sterilized conditions, avoiding malolactic fermentation and preserving the fruit characteristics of the wine. The wine was aged two months on light lees to preserve freshness.

A dry wine of great character and versatility. It is characterized by a clean, intense aroma and a pleasant golden apple finish. It is wonderfully fresh and well-balanced on the palate with a long finish.

About Carletto:

Armando De Zan, owner of Candoni wines, created Carletto to honor his beloved uncle. A Cavaliere del Lavoro, or "Commander of the Order for Merit Recognition", Uncle Carletto was an Italian agronomist known for his outstanding viticultural work uncovering the most authentic Italian native varietals. Armando features these traditions and varietals in his lineup of wines sourced from Italy's most important wine regions.
