Pinot Grigio
pinot-grigio
Originating from the large Burgundy family, Pinot Grigio - also known as Ruländer or Grauburgunder- is currently the most cultivated white wine variety in Alto Adige/Südtirol. Pinot Grigio is a medium-bodied white wine with warm, flowery aromas resembling ripe apples, pears, quince or linden blossoms. The variety demonstrates different characteristics depending upon its zone of cultivation. The spectrum ranges from slim, fresh wines in the Val Venosta to Pinot Grigios with a certain mineral quality in the Adige Valley to the bright, richer versions from Bolzano and the Oltradige.
