Cupra Ramato continues a tradition of the Republic of Venice, since “ramato,” or coppery, was the term that referred to Pinot Grigio in contracts. A special vinification practice led to the use of this term: the must remains in contact with the skins for 36 hours and this practice gives the wine a very distinctive coppery hue. Attems Cupra Ramato boasts a rich, fruity bouquet, and opens full and weighty on the palate, with multi-faceted flavours.
Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2012 Pinot Grigio Ramato is a white wine that sees just enough skin contact to render a pink-copper hue to its appearance. For that reason, it makes more sense to classify this wine as a rose (although the color tinting here is very light). The aromas are fresh and pungent with pretty notes of citrus, pink grapefruit and blanched almond. The 2012 vintage presents a fine and zesty touch of acidity that really adds to its appeal. Drink: 2014-2015. (Dec 2013)
