So, are you asking yourself, "What is Ramato wine?" Here's a quick primer to whet your appetite. Ramato is a skin fermented Pinot Grigio, but don't make the mistake of thinking that it's just another 'orange' wine or just another Rosé.
Pinot Grigio hasn't always been the dry, unpigmented wines we typically see today. In Friuli, Pinot Grigio grapes were historically crushed and the skin allowed to macerate with the juice. That could lend a toothiness and a tell-tale color to the wine. 'Ramato' means coppered in Italian and refers to this delicious copper-hued Italian farmhouse style wine.
Ramati have been produced in the Friuli-Venezia-Giulia region of Italy where Pinot Grigio has been grown for hundreds of years it's the Italian name for Pinot Gris, a mutated varietal from white Pinot grapes. And while this type of wine is tied to the Friuli region, the style is made in other parts of Italy and enjoying an emergence in other parts of the world.
