Pinot Grigio

A White Pro with Broad Potential for Surprises

Pinot Grigio, also known in German as Ruländer, comes from the large Burgundy family. Depending upon cultivation zone, this full-bodied white wine that is rich in extracts shows itself from very different sides: sometimes fiery and corpulent with fruity aromas of ripe apples, pears, and quince, sometimes sleek and mineral-rich with soft scent tones of linden blossoms. In this way, it proves itself again and again.
