Pinot Grigio Dolomiti IGT

Pinot Grigio shines in the hills of the Dolomites of the Adige Valley, thanks to higher elevations, nutrient-rich soil and excellent exposure. Most of the wine ferments in stainless steel while a portion ferments in barrique and the entire blend rests on its lees for a minimum of four months, leading to more depth, body and structure. Fragrant aromas of acacia, sage, hay, almond and sandalwood lead into a lively, elegant and fresh palate. A lovely accompaniment to a wide range of foods.
