Pinot Grigio is considered a white grape variety, even though its fruits are reddish to blue in colour. It is characterised by mild acidity and a fine apple aroma. Its mineral properties originate in the chalky soil near the Dolomite mountains. This variety of grape, also called Grauburgunder or Pinot Gris, primarily thrives in cooler climates. It is picked well before fully ripening and fermented at very cool temperatures. The wine stands out with a golden-yellow colour.
The PINOT GRIGIO DELLE VENEZIE DOC impresses visually with bright yellow and light green reflections. Its subtly fruity nose combines apple and pear with citrus fruits in the background. This fresh wine reveals those aromas cleanly and clearly on the palate.
An excellent accompaniment to food, PINOT GRIGIO DELLE VENEZIE DOC is also suitable as an aperitif in its own right. It goes very well with vegetable dishes, salads, and Italian specialities such as Parma ham, pasta dishes and risotto. Of course, it also shows its exceptional qualities together with white meats.
Pinot Grigio originally comes from Burgundy. Within its wide area of distribution, it is also known as Grauburgunder or Pinot Gris. Pinot Grigio has a long, varied tradition in northern Italy. Some years ago, demand was so high that quality suffered. In the meantime, Pinot Grigio has returned to its former strength – especially in the Veneto region.
