“A very pretty Pinot Grigio with plenty of fruit salad and some floral notes. Lighthearted and playful, but there’s lively enough acidity to refresh and leave the palate clean. A good sundowner. Drink now.”~JS

“Apple and citrus fragrance. The palate offers tart green apple and creamy lemon along with nice weight and crisp acidity. This finishes dry and is perfect as an aperitif or pair it with light pasta dishes or seafood.”~ Winery Notes

View all from Tenuta Luisa
A life-long family passion, the Luisa estate began more than 80 years ago when Francesco Luisa, left a widower at only 37 years old and with six children to raise, had the foresight and the grit to purchase12 acres of land. Here starts the saga of the Luisas of Corona carried on by his son Delciso. Delciso's son, Eddi, began working at the estate when he was only 13 years old and continues to be a presence there today with the help of his children, Michele and Davide. Together, these two generations continue to seek innovation while respecting and emphasizing the character of the terroir, itself. Unlike many of its much smaller neighbors, the Luisa estate consists of 210 acres of vineyards in the Corona area of the Isonzo DOC. This largely gravel plateau was created by the erosion of melting Alpine glaciers. The soil is characteristically rich in minerals, especially aluminium and iron, giving the wines of the area a unique flavor that stays faithful to its terroir of origin. This unique area is bordered by the Adriatic Sea to the south and the Carnic Alps to the north, which allows the vineyards to benefit from the confluence of winds: the Bora, a cold, stinging easterly wind and the Scirocco, a warmer and more humid wind, coming from the sea. The Bora, in particular, favors a slow, but constant maturation, producing grapes that are more concentrated and better balanced, with richer flavors and aromas. Luisa celebrates the distinct personality of this microclimate by concentrating on single varietal wines that showcase all the potential of each varietal without the distraction of blending or oak aging.
