Ramato delle Venezie



Crisp and crystal clear wine with a special copper color. The peach dominates in the scent, complemented by the impression of tropical fruit such as pineapple and discreet notes of spring flowers. It is elegant and soft in the mouth with a firm texture and fullness. Good and nice length. The name Ramato refers to the special vinification method, which has roots back to Italy's northeastern wine district. The wine gets its special copper color by macerating (= soaking) the must with the grape skin. This way of vinifying Pinot Grigio is an ancient tradition of the former Venetian Republic.


Sprød og krystalklar vin med en særlig kobberfarvet nuance. Fersken dominerer i duften suppleret med indtryk af tropisk frugt som ananas og diskrete noter af forårsblomster. Den er elegant og blød i munden med en fast struktur og fylde. God og flot længde. Navnet Ramato henviser til den specielle vinificeringsmetode, som har rødder tilbage til Italiens nordøstlige vindistrik. Vinen får sin særlige kobberfarve ved at mosten macererer (=oblødes) med drueskindet. Denne måde at vinificere Pinot Grigio på er en gammel tradition i den tidligere venetianske republik.

Augusto Dal Cero founded the vineyard in Verona in 1934. He bought a unique piece of land in the municipality of Roncá, dominated by two extinct volcanoes, Crocetta and Calvarina, on the border between Verona and Vicenza. The soil is rich in basalt as well as gray and black tuf, and the vineyards were laid out in terraces on the slopes of the volcanoes. The climate is temperate and night and day temperatures vary widely throughout the year. This has a positive influence on the wines and helps to produce distinctive and tasty wines.

Jorden er rig på basalt samt grå og sort tuf, og vinmarkerne blev anlagt i terrasser på vulkanernes skråninger. Klimaet er tempereret, og nat- og dagstemperaturer varierer meget i løbet af året. Dette har positiv indflydelse på vinene og er med til at give markante og velsmagende vine.

General grape descriptions

Pinot Grigio

This white-wine-producing mutation of Pinot Noir is enjoying a wave of popularity perhaps greater than it has ever known, and certainly on a wider geographical scale, even if it is relatively rarely known by its true French name Pinot Gris. Until recently Pinot Gris was probably known mainly in Alsace (as Tokay d'Alsace), northern Italy (as Pinot Grigio) and in Germany (as Grauburgunder or occasionally Ruländer). Today however it is known and increasingly planted in less classic wine regions, from Mendoza and Monterey to Marlborough. 

Pinot Gris is one of the darkest-skinned grapes producing white wine, rivalling Gewürztraminer for the redness of its berries. The grapes can vary from grey-blue to brownish pink, sometimes on the same bunch, and the resulting wine tends to be quite deep golden, even copper-toned. It is relatively soft, rarely has very marked acidity, can also be relatively high in alcohol (depending on how ripe the grapes are when picked) and as well as being full-bodied can have quite a spicy perfume (though in a much less specific way than Gewürztraminer).
