Pinot Grigio DOC Alto Adige
A white wine with a strong personality
Our Pinot Grigio grows in an ideal microclimate on the deep, sandy and loamy soils above Lake Caldaro.
The wine is a bright straw-yellow with slight greenish reflexes. It has aromas of apricots, pears and ripe mirabelles. Full, juicy and fresh on the palate, with slight green-fruity notes of lime zest in the finish.
Our Pinot Grigio is the ideal partner for fine fish dishes, seafood, vegetable dishes, salads and antipasti.
