Collavini IL Grigio Brut Spumante NV

The Collio region, a strip of hills against the Slovenian border, was only reunited with Italy after The First World War. This region is reputed to have one of Europe's most privileged micro-climates for white wines which dominate the region, while the red wines are also noted for their appeal. Collio wines are rather more intense than the wines from Friuli and have impressive richness and length. Founded by Eugenio Collavini in 1896, this family owned house is now run by Manlio Collavini together with his three sons. Located in Udine, they were among the first to vinify Ribolla Gialla (an ancient local variety) and to implement new winemaking technologies. Collavini prides itself on its clean, modern style wines while still retaining the traditions and grape varieties native to this area. Collavini's Broy is a multiple Tre Bicchieri winner and is recognised as one of Italy's top white wines.

Vinification
The chardonnay grapes were picked before the Glera (previously known as Prosecco). The grapes were softly pressed separately and were not macerated on the skins. Fermentation took place at 14C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. This was followed by 5-6 months lees contact in sealed tanks to give extra richness. The wine was made sparkling using the Charmat method.

Viticulture
Cordon

Tasting Note
Bright straw colour with a greenish tinge and fine constant bubbles. A fragrant nose with a hint of apples and pears with biscuity tones. A full flavour with a slight touch of lemon on the lingering finish.

Everyday Serving Suggestion

IL Grigio Brut is best served chilled as an aperitif or to accompany fish hors d'oeuvres and roast pork. Also excellent with pureed vegetables

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.
