Fabulous 93-Point Pinot Grigio from “one of the most accomplished, quality minded estates in Italy” (Wine Advocate). Dessimus is their top single vineyard Pinot Grigio. It has luscious creamy texture, slight nuttiness and layers of ripe stone fruit.
Full body and textured, creamy stone fruit, floral and herb notes
Peach stone, apricot, rose petal, ripe apple and dried herbs
A very special treat for lovers of fine Italian whites. This is a Pinot Grigio like you’ve never tasted before. Gorgeous intensity, pure fruit, mineral elegance, layered and textured. Only released after two years, it has nuttiness too. Dessimus is a premium white from Gianni Gallo’s small estate in the heart of Isonzo. All the grapes come from the Dessimus vineyard, with its stony, glacial, mineral laden soils. The vines bask in sunshine during the day and benefit from cooling Alpine downdraughts at night. This diurnal temperature variation accentuates the wine’s aromatic qualities. Ageing partly in old oak lends texture and creamy weight to its ripe fruit notes. Superb with cuisine such as polenta and creamy chicken or seafood risotto.
