2014 Ermacora Pinot Grigio Colli Orientali del Friuli

SKU #1230498

Producer Note: "A classic wine for the entire meal, a wonderful accompainment to hams and young cold cuts, eggplant, fish dishes and white meats. The "Grigio" holds the second place in our production. The grapes, balanced and mature, offer a wine with Mediterranean hints of pear, peach and dried flowers. The taste of Pinot Grigio is fat and complex due to notes of melon, baked apple and tropical fruit, with hints of apricot. When young, it is a pleasant wine for its fresh and acid note."

Of the 3 important DOC zones in Friuli the Colli Orientali del Friuli (graciously referred to as COF) is the most northerly, its best vineyards sit on U shaped glacial moraines that offer slope to the otherwise flat glaciations of the rest of the Region. This is the 17th vintage for us importing the wines of Ermacora, I originally went looking for inexpensive Pinot Grigio but came away in awe of their Pinot Bianco and Friulano. Each vintage one or the other of them just shines a bit brighter than the others, this vintage the Pinot Grigio (I think the best they have released to date) is full of superlatives. Not usually my favorite Italian white variety but this wine…ROCKS! Fermented and aged in stainless steel as always but this vintage has given this wine a backbone. By that I mean a real structural center, acidic balance and a place to hang your spice-laden fruit. PG is usually a bit round and simplistic but this wine has facets, brilliant edges emphasizing the fruit and spice. It still has plenty of weight and richness but coupled with that central purity, lifting its flavors, this is the best Pinot Grigio they’ve made.
Drink from 2016 to 2021

Perfect everyday white for Mother's Day Brunch! This crisp and clean Pinot Grigio has subtle pear and apricot flavors. There is a hint of lemon on the finish. Great to pair with fish or a charcuterie and cheese plate. Stock up for summer!

Additional Information:


Pinot Gris

- Also known as Pinot Gris in France, where it originated as a mutation of Pinot Noir. The berries can vary in color from yellowish to bluish-violet producing wines that range from white to slightly pink. The most successful wines from the grape come from the Collio in Friuli (Northeast Italy), where the wines are light- to medium-bodied, crisp, dry and, because of their high acidity, complementary to the region's foods like speck, Prosciutto di San Daniele and polenta. In Alsace, where the grape takes a back seat to more popular varietals like Gewürztraminer and Riesling, it is generally rich and honeyed. Other successful plantings of Pinot Grigio exist in Austria, Germany, Hungary and Romania, with even smaller amounts planted in British Columbia, Australia, New Zealand and California.


- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
