The history of Folonari dates from 1825 when Francesco Folonari founded the firm in Valmonica
in the Veneto region of Italy. In the later half of the 19th Century, he and his sons moved to Brescia, establishing one of Italy’s finest winemaking facilities. From the very beginning, the founders wanted to create wines accessible to everyday tables. They pioneered the production and distribution of wine in bottles, thus making it possible for consumers to drink wines of good and consistent quality on an everyday basis. This philosophy continues to guide the firm today as it offers a range of modern wines from the most popular viticultural areas of Italy.
Folonari Pinot Grigio
Favored sites in Trentino
and in Veneto, on the hills along the Adige Valley, vines trained by the “Pergola” (trellis) system, on well positioned well drained, firm, alluvial soil. There’s no need to stress over enjoying wine. Great wine pairs just as easily with fancy dinners out as it does with takeout at home. Folonari Pinot Grigio is a perfect compliment to casual, comfortable nights in. Pale yellow color. Fragrant and fresh bouquet. Dry and crisp with an elegant background of green apples and a clean finish.

The fruit for this wine was grown on hillside vineyards in Oltrpo Pavese, Italy. The fruit was left to ripen a bit beyond maturity to bring out every ounce of fruit and sweetness. After gentle pressing, temperature-controlled fermentation took place in stainless steel. Moscato has lower alcohol content than the average table wine, and when the desired level was achieved fermentation was halted by dropping the temperature; this also keeps the inherent sweetness in place. Anjou pear, nectarine and honeydew kick in as well. Bits of white pepper emerge on the finish, which has some lingering sweetness but sufficient acidity to keep things in check. Moscato works well as an aperitif, and is also lovely paired with certain desserts -- fruit tarts, mild and creamy cheeses.
