Jermann originates from the North East Italian area Friuli. Their Ramato wine is a style of Pinot Grigio which offers great texture and depth as they crush Pinot Grigio grapes and after which the juice spends time on the skin. Ramato can become a pale Pink or also a Copper color depending on the maceration time. We would like to let you know where Ramato gets its Copper color from the Pinot Grigio grapes. First of all it is important to understand that Pinot Grigio is not a White - skinned grape at all; its skins have a Rosey-Grey tone, hence the name is gris or grigio. This means Grey in French and Italian respectively. The Ramato Copper-like lustre is attributed to the extended maceration of the must on the skins during the winemaking process. And color also comes from the natural pigments of the grapes that seep into the juice while they are still on the vine.
Ramato is a historical style of producing Pinot Grigio in the Friuli-Venezia-Giulia region of Italy, where Pinot Grigio has been grown for hundreds of years. Although Ramato today is inextricably tied to the area of Friuli it is also produced in other parts of Italy and lately in California and New York too.
