The plains that extend from Venice to Pordenone see heavily clayey soils alternate with terrain dominated by gravel, especially near the numerous rivers that descend from the Alps towards the northern Adriatic. In Pramaggiore we find the headquarters of Daniele Piccinin’s winery, one of the most interesting in the region thanks to about 20 hectares of vineyards. Dedicated to the area’s traditional grapes, the property is enriched by a small presence of PIWI varieties. Organic management gives rise to a fragrant style that’s respectful of the grapes’ varietal attributes. Only the bare minimum was presented for tasting this year, just three wines. The Pinot Grigio ’20 pours a mature, straw-yellow color, the prelude to aromas of nice intensity, with yellow fruit in the foreground followed by curious sulphurous notes and Mediterranean scrub. In the mouth it features nice fullness and a plucky, pleasantly rustic palate.
