Pinot Grigio, MARETIMA, Delle Venezie, Veneto, Italy

The two Italian words “mare" (sea) and "terra” (land) are the origins of the name Maretima.  These two components come together creating the climate that results in Mediterranean scents and flavors captured in this bottle of wine.  And, it is more than just taste; it communicates the emotions, originating from the wine culture, passing through the selection of grapes, to the production techniques, and the continuous research of men and women who work the land in harmony and in complete respect of the environment.  It is more than you expect from the first glance...
  • Hints of Sage
  • Lemon
  • Green Apple
  • Tropical Fruit
  • Walnut / Almond
The Veneto, where this wine comes from, is among the foremost wine-producing regions in the world, both for quality and quantity.  This area has cultivated grapes since the Bronze Age, or about five thousand years ago.  The subregion Colli Euganei is characterized by steep, almost triangular hills, caused millennia ago by volcanoes. Here medieval hamlets and Benedictine monasteries, continue to this day.  This unspoiled landscapes is part of a “Parco Regionale” a protected land and is an ideal location for grape growing for winemaking.
