Cevico Pignoletto Frizzante Colli Imola 2018

The Pignoletto Colli Imola from Cevico wines has an attractive and delicately floral bouquet on the nose and a crisp, refreshing flavour. A cross between Pinot Grigio and Prosecco in style, slightly sparkling.

Producer Note - Based in Emilia-Romagna, Cevico is the second biggest Italian wine producer, representing 18 wineries and with over 6,700 hectares under vine. This is one of the most impressive companies we have ever been to. As well as the benefits of size, Cevico offer a myriad of small estates producing a bewildering array of wines, from both established and lesser-known appellations.

Vintage - A very mild winter resulted in an early start to the growing season. Low rainfall during spring resulted in reduced yields. However, hot and dry weather conditions during the summer growing season produced ripe and healthy grapes with vibrant fruit flavours and excellent varietal characteristics.

Vineyard - Pignoletto Imola DOC gains its title from the nearby hills, the Colli Imola. The appellation starts at the Po valley floor and reaches the western edge of the town of Imola. Here the land is gently sloping with a soil based on clay and loam. The Grechetto Gentile grape variety (previously referred to as Pignoletto) is used for the production of gently sparkling and still wines due to its aromatic expression and fresh acidity. Cultivated mostly on the hills but also on the plains, this vine is hardy and adapts well to different climatic conditions.

Winemaking - The grapes were pressed and the must was settled. The juice was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to retain the delicate flavours of this variety. The secondary fermentation took place in an autoclave using the Charmat method. It lasted for one month, using only selected yeasts and was maintained at a controlled temperature of 12°C. The wine spent 15 days on its lees, adding a creamy texture and complexity to the resulting wine. It was bottled at 2.5 atmospheres of pressure.

Tasting Note - An attractive and delicately floral bouquet on the nose, leading to a crisp, refreshing flavour with a soft, full and harmonious palate. Delicately sparkling, this is a cross between Pinot Grigio and Prosecco in style.

Serving Suggestion - Pignoletto is a food friendly sparkling wine, which is dry enough to balance the acidity of tomatoes, but round and fruity enough to accompany fish and creamy pasta dishes. Accompanies first courses, fish and fresh cheese. Also delicious with Chinese inspired cuisine.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
