who grows the grapes? who makes the wines?
what wines do they make?
when did the winery start?
12/7/07 is, according to documents in the Archives of the City of Trentino, when Domenico Armani purchased “trees and grapevines”, from his father Simone Armani. It’s worth noting the limitations of our abbreviated system for recording dates. 12/7/07 indicates December 7th in the 7th year of the Seventeenth century, ie. December 7, 1607. The same parcel of land is in the family today, more than four hundred years later.
where is the winery?
why might you want to open a bottle?
Or maybe, you find yourself at RPM in downtown Chicago, and you’ve ordered Duck Agnolotti, brussels sprouts, mission figs and a glass of Pinot Nero seems about right. Here, the un-oaked Terre di Gioia Pinot Nero is a counterbalance to the richness of both the duck and the figs and the wine’s vibrant red fruit will stand up nicely.
how is it made?
In the winery, the Pinot Grigio is vinified at cool temperatures to preserve bright floral aromas and the Pinot Nero is allowed to stay in contact with its skins fro just 7-10 days, leading to a lighter color and brighter red fruit. Both are fermented and aged in stainless steel until they are bottled.
