Castel del Lupo Della Ginestra, Pinot Grigio

Castel del Lupo, in the heart of Oltrepò Pavese, dates back centuries – and includes the eighteenth century Palazzo Pegazzera. In 1974 three entrepreneurs took over this historic estate and began a regeneration process. Giovanni Doglio, whose father and grandfather were both Piemontese winemakers, has over 40 years’ experience managing wineries. Recently joined by his daughter Federica, he has worked tirelessly to develop the estate. They have purchased more vineyards (to cover 100ha at around 300m altitude), planted new vines and built a new cellar.

The vineyards are now certified organic (since 2020). The winery’s main focus is high quality bottle-fermented sparkling wine, and much of the vineyard is planted with Pinot Noir for this purpose.

This nicely textured Pinot Grigio is deliciously fresh and dry with crisp apple and pear fruit flavours. The palate is light, juicy and vibrant with refreshing hints of grapefruit and pineapple.
