Varietal: 100% Pinot Grigio
Appellation: DOC Tre Venezie
Winemaking: Carefully selected whole clusters of Pinot Grigio undergo soft pressing just hours after harvesting. To preserve the purity of the grape variety and to allow a crisp, fresh taste to shine through the wine, the Pinot Grigio was slowly fermented in stainless steel vats at cold temperature. This time consuming method of fermentation allows the essence of the grape to fully develop.

On the nose it shows immediate forward flowery bouquet and fruit, especially apple and peach, holding a firm and fruity palate. Its crisp acidity balances well with the soft character recommending it as a pleasant and easy to drink wine.
Food Pairing: It pairs well with Mediterranean cuisine: antipasti or white meat. It is great with sea food.
