Oliviero never stops finessing how he makes this perennial favourite of ours. Again this year he has reached new heights. The detail increases annually and his use of Amphorae for a small proportion of the juice adds purity and bounce to the fruit. It is certainly a winning formula! The nose is tight with pear and gentle spiciness. The palate has good breadth and is nicely layered with rich fruit, pear again, with of red berry and lemon zip. The feel though is super - a touch creamy and spicy, good length underpinned with a fresh bright line. L&S (May 2023)

I can’t remember when I first started buying the wines from Visintini. However, I know that it was the Pinot Grigio Ramato that first caught my eye. Ramato means ‘copper’ in Italian, which refers to the faint coppery colour that some Pinot Grigios pick up from their skins during winemaking. Visintini’s is exceptional because it is not a rosé nor a true white wine, but somewhere in between. 2022 Pinot Grigio Ramato Visintini (£17.95, reduced to £16.50 each by the case) is about as classic an example of this style as I have ever tasted, and I highly recommend you taste this wine.Matthew Jukes (Apr 2024)

Azienda Agricola Visintini

Founded in 1973 by Andrea Visintini, this twenty-four hectare estate has vineyards in Collio, Collio Orientali and Grave del Friuli, and is now controlled by the new generation of Oliviero and his twin sisters Cinzia and Palmira. The wines are beautifully made, each with wonderful expression of both the grape and the 'terroir'. Vineyard practices are now entirely biodynamic, and certified this year. These wines are also extraordinarily good value in what is generally a highly priced region.

With the 2014 vintage the family have unveiled the brilliant new labels for each of the wines - with the beautiful botanical drawings of flavours or fruits that relate to the flavour profiles in each different varietal. The wines are great too - in a far from straightforward vintage - beautiful fruit definition and lovely bright minerality.
