PG Pighin FriuliRegular price $17.99
The 2021 vintage is an excellent vintage similar to recent harvests with good acidity for all varieties. The year began with a cold and rainy winter. The spring, particularly in April, was cold with frost in the southern part of the region towards the Adriatic Sea. Fortunately, the frost did not affect the areas of Grave del Friuli and Collio. May and the first two weeks of June were colder than normal with frequent rainfalls, causing a very slow budding and delay in flowering. Mid-June underwent a sudden change with a sharp temperature increase. The water saturation from early in the year combined with heat waves strengthened the skin of the grapes. The climate was excellent in the three weeks before harvest was excellent, with sunny and ventilated days and large temperature variation between the days and nights.
