Pinot Grigio
pinot-grigio
This originates from the large family of Burgundy Pinot grapes and is regarded as one of the most noble Italian white wines of all. Pinot Grigio is a full-bodied, extract-rich white wine with a warm, flowery scent which demonstrates different characteristics depending upon its zone of cultivation. The spectrum ranges from slim, fresh representatives in the Val Venosta to wines with a certain mineral quality in the Adige Valley to the glowing, substantial vintages in Bolzano and the Oltradige.
