Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
 

Notes from the Winemaker:
Golden yellow with copper tinges. The colour indicates the method of production, which in the right way highlights the intensity and complexity of the aroma (nice flower aromas developing in fruity and spicy notes), full body (the soft, mature and fruity initial taste is substituted by the note of apricots and melons), alcoholic richness with balanced acids, and variety characteristics (at the end, slightly bitter).

With food:
Due to its complex body we recommend pairing it with a wide range of dishes – from cold starters to spring-summer pasta. It is excellent with sea food dishes, and not too spicy Asian, Thai and modern Japanese cuisine.

Aging:
The maturation of a classical Pinot Grigio may develop fantastically up to ten years.

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling:
"It's hard to believe this is pinot grigio. It is as rich and structured as a great white Burgundy. Full and dense yet fresh. Shows so much dried apple and tropical fruit. Creamy texture. Strong finish. Drink or hold." - (March 2, 2018)
