Variety: Pinot Grigio
Daniele Venica purchased the plot Ronco del Ceró where he first planted Sauvignon in 1930. Three generations later, great grandson Giampaolo has taken over the estate, a true testimony to the tradition of keeping winemaking in the family. Venica now has 40 hectares all within the DOC—Denomination of Controlled Origin—of Collio. Sons Gianni (agronomist), Giorgio (cellar master), and grandson Giampaolo oversee operations supplemented by help from several family members. They believe their traditions must be enhanced through continuous research and innovation, but a relationship with nature is of utmost importance.
In the flood of bad Pinot Grigio around the world, there are a few producers that still care about the quality of mainstream grapes. This wine always shows perfume and texture, something that is lacking from most of the wines of Friuli. The grapes undergo 4-8 hours of skin maceration, imparting the coppery color often associated with the wines of this region.
