VINEYARD: Il Conto Vecchio uses grapes that are grown in the ancient territory of Pavia, a subregion of Campania, in north western Italy. Pavia is mostly flat but is crossed by the Apennine Mountains. This fertile province is the origin of some of the world's best wines because of its sunny but mild climate and long historical tradition. The Ticino, Po, and Olona rivers flow through the region, providing the soil with hydration and rich nutrients which make it ideal for agriculture. Pinot Grigio is the Italian term for Pinot Gris, a variety closely related to the red Pinot Noir.
GRAPES: Pinot Grigio.
PREPARATION: Blush wine is typically created by vinifying a white grape variety and leaving in in contact with the lees of red grapes for a short amount of time.
PAIRING: Roasted chicken, veal, shellfish, risotto, creamy pastas, manchego and parmesan.
RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 8-10°C
