Feb 23, 2022

Masottina AI Palazzi Dorsoduro Pinot Grigio Review Wine features a strong floral aroma with undertones of oak and spice. The wine has a pleasant, sweet flavor with hints of citrus fruit on the finish that lingers pleasantly in the mouth.

Masottina: Dorsoduro Pinot Grigio DOC delle Venezie

Grape varieties: Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay

This wine is made from a blend of Pinot Grigio grapes and a small percentage of Chardonnay grapes. 

Why is it called Dorsoduro?

It owes its name to one of the districts of the enchanting Venice, the Dorsoduro district.

The name comes from the fact that the area, in the past, was occupied by firm ground (a "dorso duro"), less marshy than in other parts of the city. Most of the university buildings are located in the Dorsoduro district, making it one of the favorite areas for students to live.

This wine expresses liveliness, freshness and harmony, it is pleasantly versatile and easy to drink, but not banal. A surprising wine that perfectly photographs an area animated by youth, artists and history.

Ai Palazzi Dorsoduro: Organoleptic characteristics 

Luminous straw yellow of medium consistency. Intense and complex on the nose with hints of apple, crunchy pear flesh, citrus fruits such as grapefruit, citron and lemon with an almond and jasmine blossom finish.  The taste is very savory and pleasantly fresh, but capable of excellent balance thanks to its enveloping glyceric softness. In harmony with the olfactory sensations with an immediate reminder of a fresh citrus fruit, the finish is dry and clean with good sapidity.

Ai Palazzi Dorsoduro: Vinification and refinement

Matured in steel for 6 months and 3 months in bottle.

Ai Palazzi Dorsoduro: Pairing
