Pinot Grigio 100%
Alto Adige, Italy
Colterenzio Pinot Grigio 2016/2017
The Colterenzio winegrowers co-operative was found by 28 vintners in 1960. Over the years more passionate viticulturists from diversified micro-zones in the area have joined the collective and today nearly 300 members cultivate approximately 300 hectares of vineyards. They produce top class grapes, the vine has to respect the ecosystem and be in perfect balance with it. Pinot Grigio, known as Pinot Gris in France, thrives in the hills of Alto Adige where significant temperature differences between day and night guarantee fresh aromas and lively acidity.
Bright yellow colour with green nuances; attractive ripe orchard fruits on the nose; elegant and multi-faceted, yeasty with hints of honeydew melon and citrus fruits supported by a firm acidity, typical of the vintage and leading to a flinty aftertaste. Enjoy it at its best within 5 years.
Pasta and fragrant summer dishes, fish and seafood, white meats and fresh cheeses. Serve lightly chilled: 10 – 12° C.
