Full, elegant, excellent white wine with acidulous finish.
Fruity, bloomy and wholehearted wine, strongly recalling elder, black currant and green grass.
On the palate it is rich and dry, herbaceous, earthy and long due to its firm, tannic structure, characteristics which will enable this wine to mature magnificently in bottle for at least a year or two, continuing to evolve, mellow and develop complexity.
Light green lustre run through the straw colour of this wine whose aroma is rich in fruits, the most striking of which are pears. An excellent acidity balance gives this wine strength and structure. It is dry and smooth on the palate, and leaves a long, pleasant aftertaste. The Pinot Grigio goes well with many dishes, especially lighter foods, to which it is an excellent accompaniment. It is served chilled and also bestows a fine taste following longer ageing.
