Wine & Vintage Details

Tasting Note

This Pinot Grigio benefits from the microclimate of the particular Valdadige area that gives the wine a straw-yellow color and an impressive fruity bouquet. Medium bodied with a lean mineral-edge, backed up by fresh fruit and vibrancy on the palate, showing tropical fruit on the finish. Pair with appetizers, pasta with vegetables, fish and white meat dishes like chicken.

Vintage

The 2017 harvest throughout the country was characterized by somewhat unfavorable climate, with spring frosts and much cooler summer temperatures accompanied by drought, throughout the growing season. The overall production quantity in the Veneto region was down but the fruit was in very good quality. Grapes were very healthy and showed a ripening characteristic typical of warmer years. The harvest was about one week earlier than the previous vintagestarted on August 20th.
