Pinot Grigio has never been so enjoyable!

Why do we love it?

Pinot Grigio Cru Selection 2020 Marjan Simcic is without a doubt the most special Pinot Grigio we have ever tasted. From the first moment it was served in the glass, we were surprised by both its rosy color and its exuberant temperament. Pinot Grigio has never been so enjoyable.

Pinot Grigio is the same variety as Pinot Gris which makes some of the great wines of Alsace. In Italy, however, the style and expression of the variety is quite different. When Italians hear Pinot Grigio they think of a pleasant and light white wine to accompany their aperitivo. On the other hand, Marjan Simcic, who is considered one of the top producers in the region, gives to the variety a completely different dimension. Marjan is the fifth generation of the winery and his family has been involved in wine since 1860. They have vines on both Italian and Slovenian soil, with some vines over 55 years old. The special soil gives 3 different categories of wines, depending on the soil where the grapes grow.

Pinot Grigio Cru Selection 2020 Marjan Simcic comes from opoka soils (granite, sand and clay) and the vines are 44 years old. The wine ferments with ambient yeasts in large (2500 liter) conical oak barrels, along with the skins, for 8 days. Then, after being pressed and separated from the skins, the wine matures there for 12 months, with its fine lees. It is bottled unfiltered and matures for another 6 months in the bottle. The result impresses with its structure and complexity.

Try it now or after 5 years, it has a long way to go!

PINOT GRIGIO CRU SELECTION 2020 - MARJAN SIMCIC

PAIR IT

Pairs very well with beef carpaccio, pasta with broccoli and blue cheese, curry with shrimp

Shrimps wrapped in prosciutto, with orange marmalade

  • 1/4 cup orange jam
  • 1/4 cup of white dry wine
  • 4 tsps. of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsps. of finely chopped ginger
  • 1 large clove of chopped garlic
  • 2 fresh onions finely chopped
  • 20 shrimp jumbo or medium-sized peeled (you can leave the tail)
  • 10 slices of prosciutto cut into half lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 10 wooden skewers dipped in water for 20 minutes
  • salt
  • pepper

In a medium bowl, mix the jam, white wine, lemon juice, ginger, garlic and onions. Add salt and pepper according to your taste.

Tosh the shrimps in the bowl and turn them to get fully covered with the mixture. Leave them for 20 minutes at room temperature. After 20 minutes, drain the shrimps from  the marinade.

Roll each shrimp with a slice of prosciutto. Put 2 shrimps in each skewer and carefully pierce prosciutto so that it doesn’t  get unfolded.

Preheat the grill to medium to high temperature. If we barbeque them, we are careful to roast them in a moderate fire. Dip the skewers in the marinade and bake until the prosciutto gets crispy and the shrimps opaque and slightly reddish, about 3 minutes on each side.

Secret:

Soak the wooden skewers in water (preferably hot) before putting them in the oven or the charcoal so that they won’t burn and tan while baking.
