The name (pronounced Do-Ay OO-vay) means “two grapes,” which aptly describes this beguiling and innovative estate-bottled blend of Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc grapes.
|Wine maker notes
|Grapes for this blend are grown in Bertani’s southeast-facing Ciusa vineyard, located at an altitude of 492 - 656 feet above sea level. The soil is of lava-basaltic origin. During the day, the vines benefit from the warmth of the sun; cool nights ensure an enhanced aroma. The vines are grown on a trellis system: spurring cordon, 4,000 vines per hectare for Pinot Grigio, and 8,000 vines a hectare for Sauvignon Blanc.
|Grape Varieties - 50% Pinot Grigio and 50% Sauvignon Blanc
Vinification - Grapes are fermented separately at 68°F. The two wines are blended in January after harvest, transferred to Stainless Steel and remain on their lees until the summer. The Pinot Grigio gives structure and elegance, Sauvignon Blanc lends aroma and freshness.
