Pinot Grigio DOC Friuli Colli Orientali 2020
Marls and sandstones of Eocene origin better known as "ponca"
It all began in the sixties, when grandfather Min and then father Livio started a story that still lives on in Massimo and Marco Zorzettig's Tunella, guardians, together with their mother Gabriella, of more than fifty years of family tradition. In the Tunella of today live together the present and the memory, the desire to experiment and the highest traditions of the Colli Orientali del Friuli: a present that day after day builds its future.
Our winery is called Tunella since 2002: the new name, which replaced the previous Livio Zorzettig, is a toponym which indicates a farmhouse and a hill located near the winery, among meadows and vineyards surrounded by the sweet landscape of Colli Orientali.
Although Tunella is a company with a long history, we have never abandoned the maniacal attention that distinguishes every little winemaker when he works in his vineyard. It is not by chance that our philosophy is "to do little in order to do better": this is the only way we can offer something of excellent quality and at the same time absolutely unique and personal.
Inside every Tunella bottle there are the earth, the sun, the rain, the wind: because wine collects everything it receives. And because we want those who will come after us to enjoy the same flavors and scents, we pay attention to the sustainability of production.
Pinot Grigio always manages to amaze for its unique ability to combine elegance, body and freshness. A vibrant wine, great to drink, perfect companion of the table. La Tunella offers it in an impeccable interpretation of typicality and balance.
Intense straw yellow, more intense as it ages.
Fruity and fragrant on the nose, reminiscent of warm bread crust and the intense aroma of acacia flowers and ripe tropical fruits. The palate confirms the olfactory sensations and is elegant, full bodied, moderately acidulous, with delicate notes of yeast. It is a wine of strong personality.
