    Winemaker Notes

    The vineyard's limestone rich soil and mild climate due to the close proximity to the sea produces this top quality Pinot Grigio grapes. Yielding a color of straw yellow with golden highlights, this wine is full bodied and pleasantly soft on the palate. Aromas of light citrus and delicate flowers are complemented by tastes of geen apples and Bartlett pears, ending with a delightfully long finish.

    Tenuta Polvaro, Veneto, Italy
    Image of winery
    The Tenuta Polvaro estate was founded by the Polvaro family in 1681. This noble Venetian family completely transformed the original forest plot into beautifully cultivated fields suitable for growing the finest grapes. They built the manor house, "barchessa" (open barn) and sacred chapel, both of which we still admire today.

    The Candoni De Zan family has purchased the Tenuta Polvaro estate and has brought it back to its original beauty and splendor with respect to its seventeenth century architecture. The vineyard itself has also undergone a gradual restoration process. The soil has been delicately worked in order to preserve its natural fertilization and structure. The Candoni De Zan family placed supreme importance to giving proper respect to the natural landscape and surrounding environment during their restoration process.

    A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine.

    The sub-region of Valpolicella (meaning “valley of cellars” in Italian) is a series of north to south valleys and is the source of Veneto’s best red wine with the same name. Valpolicella—the wine—is juicy, spicy, tart and packed full of red cherry flavors. Corvina makes up the backbone of the blend with Rondinella, Molinara, Croatina and others playing supporting roles. Recioto and Amarone follow the same blending patterns but are made from grapes left to dry for a few months before pressing, resulting in wines that are intense, full-bodied, heady and often, quite cerebral.

    Soave, based on the indigenous Garganega grape, is the famous white here—made ultra popular in the 1970s at a time when quantity was more important than quality. Today one can find great values on whites from Soave, making it a perfect choice as an everyday sipper! But the more recent local, increased focus on low yields and high quality winemaking in the original Soave zone, now called Soave Classico, gives the real gems of the area. A fine Soave Classico will exhibit a round palate full of flavors such as ripe pear, apricot, or yellow peach, have smoky and exotic aromas and a sapid, fresh, mineral-driven finish.

    Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where the crisp and refreshing style is easy to maintain; the ultra-popular sparkling wine, Prosecco, comes from here as well.

    Pinot Gris/Grigio

    View all wine

    One grape variety with two very distinct personas, Pinot Gris in France is rich, round, and aromatic, while Pinot Grigio in Italy is simple, crisp, and refreshing. In Italy, Pinot Grigio is grown in the mountainous regions of Trentino, Friuli, and Alto Adige in the northeast. In France it reaches its apex in Alsace. Pinots both “Gris” and “Grigio” are produced successfully in Oregon's Willamette Valley as well as parts of California, and are widely planted throughout central and eastern Europe.

    In the Glass

    Pinot Gris is naturally low in acidity, so full ripeness is necessary to achieve and showcase its signature flavors and aromas of stone fruit, citrus, honeysuckle, pear, and almond skin. Alsatian styles are aromatic, richly textured and often relatively high in alcohol. As Pinot Grigio in Italy, the style is much more subdued, light, simple, and easy to drink.

    Perfect Pairings

    Alsace is renowned for its potent food–pork, foie gras, and charcuterie. With its viscous nature, Pinot Gris fits in harmoniously with these heavy hitters. Pinot Grigio, on the other hand, with its lean, crisp, citrusy freshness, works better with simple salads, a wide range of seafood, and subtle chicken dishes.

    Sommelier Secret

    Outside of France and Italy, the decision by the producer whether to label as “Gris” or “Grigio” serves as a strong indicator as to the style of wine in the bottle—the former will typically be a richer, more serious rendition while the latter will be bright, fresh, and fun.
