Villa Sonia Pinot Grigio

100% Pinot Grigio

Light gold in color with a pleasingly bitter aftertaste. It is perfect complement for hors d’oeuvres, fish dishes and soup.

Type of wine: Light, very crisp, dry white.

Origin: A mutation of Pinot Noir, which it resembles in the field, Pinot Grigio is the Italian white wine most recognized by American wine consumers. It is most prominent in Alto-Adige, Veneto and especially Friuli, where the finest examples are made in the Collio area. Italians pick the fruit early as it has a tendency to drop acidity when it ripens fully.

Description: Pale, straw-yellow or very light copper in color with a bright and flowery fragrance. Firm acidity gives Pinot Grigio a mouth watering appeal. Generally offers nice mid-palate balance with a short, clean finish.

Aging: Another one to drink young, young, young!
