Sensory profile This wine reflects the rarity and austere elegance of old gold, while in the glass one appreciates the full-range tonality of its coppery hue, lightly edged in orange. The bouquet is initially redolent of delicate citrusy notes of mandarin and orange blossom, followed by ethereal scents of spring blossoms and tropical fruit that waft over a background of dried fruit and nuts, such as almond and hazelnut. These heady first impressions temper with time, ceding to a smooth overall harmony. In the mouth, the fairly low weight classic to this grape is complemented by a general balance of all the wine’s components, by its superb vibrancy, and remarkable length. Its rich minerality is accompanied by aromatic notes of apricot, peach, and smooth citrus in the mid-palate, which meld slowly into a finish whose hallmarks are roasted nuts and a pleasant, bitterish touch at the very end. Overall, this is a wine with strong personality that offers stunning coherence among appearance, bouquet and palate.


Pairings This Pinot Grigio will be wonderful with vegetable pastas and risottos, but also with fried food and fresh cheeses.
