Winemaker's Notes:

Primavera (Springtime) is the beginning of the winemaker's year-an exciting and critical time when we prepare our vines to produce exquisite fruit which is reflected in the beauty, aromas and rich flavors of our wines. These are the very qualities treasured by the legendary Count Placido, a 13th century Tuscan nobleman, passionate about fine wine and food, and credited with the winemaking tradition that lives on today in Placido Primavera.

Traditional white-wine vinification. Alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel for 12 to 14 days to extract optimal flavor and preserve varietal character.

Placido Pinot Grigio is a delightful aperitif, and is perfect for a range of foods including appetizers, seafood, and grilled poultry and pork.

My Notes:

About Placido:

Placido wines owe their phenomenal popularity to choice grapes grown in some of the world's premier wine regions, renowned winemaking expertise and a quality-price ratio difficult to match. The brand inherited its name from a famous Sienese family, the Placidi, on whose vast Tuscan estate some of the Placido vines grow today. Now a worldwide brand, Placido has also brought centuries of European winemaking experience to Chile's grape growing region.

Consisting of eight noble wine types, their wines include: Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Montepulciano D'Abruzzo, Chianti and a fruity Pinot Grigio all from grapes grown in choice Tuscany vineyards. Chile's Maipo Valley offers an ideal micro-climate for cultivating the noblest of French stock, such as Placido's Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay.
