The 2012 Friuli Colli Orientali Pinot Grigio shows a surprisingly fragrant side of the grape with bright aromas of white peach, lemon blossom and honeydew melon. Pretty floral intensity fills in the rear. This is a rather unusual and especially sophisticated expression of stainless steel Pinot Grigio. Mineral tones and bright acidity appear on the close. Drink: 2014-2016.”,,,

Wine maker notes
Appearance: straw yellow with light copper hues Nose: very elegant, crispy and complex with notes of jasmine, broom and magnolia flower; notes of white peach, apricot, pear, golden apple, cantaloupe, acacia honey; hints of crushed stone. Palate: elegant first impact, tense, with good balance; excellent retro-nasal aromatics; pleasant mineral note at the end.

Other text
This celebrated variety derives from a bud mutation of Pinot Nero. As Pinot Grigio prefers cool climates, hillside vineyards are its ideal habitat. Modern vinification techniques give the wine finesse and elegance while preserving the faint coppery highlights that are Pinot Grigio’s hallmark. Without doubt, it is the best-known Friulian wine around the world.
