In a nutshell: A ripe, rounded and refreshing northern Italian Pinot Grigio with excellent body and depth.
The lowdown: Whilst this lovely, organic, Pinot Grigio comes from an estate who specialise in top notch proseccos it was, when we tasted it, clearly a cut above a lot of other examples of this grape. Its slightly more expensive than many more straight forward Pinot Grigios, but we certainly think its well worth the extra. It has honest flavours of ripe stone fruits, peach, pear and nectarine with lovely soft lemon as well. Dry, rounded and smooth with a good length and clean finish.
When to drink: Mouth filling and effortlessly enjoyable, it's great just by itself bit also has the body to pair well with chicken and seafood dishes.
The long rows of vineyards belong to the Marion family, owners of the La Jara farm, since 1891. The love for the land and its fruits has been handed down from generation to generation and today it is carried out with dedication and commitment by Massimo and Paolo Marion, who have been running the company since 1999.
Paolo and Massimo, guided by the values ??and expertise handed down by grandfather Pietro, brought their innovative character by completely revolutionizing the processing techniques and moving to completely organic agriculture.
Situated in the heart of the North-East of Italy, just 50 km from Venice, is the homeland of Prosecco and it's precisely here, between the hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene up to the Piave river where their vineyards lie
La Jara stands out in the production of quality organic wines, inspired by the principles of respect for the vineyard and its natural fertility cycle. The long rows lined up in the flat fields surrounding the winery extend for 50 hectares until they touch the stony bed of the Piave river which has given the land a unique morphology.
