Outstanding 96-Point Pinot Grigio from “one of the most accomplished, quality minded estates in Italy” (Wine Advocate). Dessimus is their top single vineyard Pinot Grigio – luscious creamy texture, slight nuttiness and layers of ripe stone fruit.
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, roundness and weight to its ripe fruit. Superb with cuisine such as polenta and creamy chicken or seafood risotto.
"Ripe pear, golden apple, mango and pineapple on the nose. Hint of honey. It’s full-bodied and creamy"
