Notes

 
Pinot Gris is an extremely complex wine with a strong yet balanced aroma. Young Pinot Gris is slightly fruity without any particular fruit note standing out; correctly processed wines exhibit a bitterish aftertaste when young. Pinot Gris ages well, mature wines develop a spicy flavor hinting at green walnuts.
 
If Ribolla and Exto represent flowers and fruits in our range then Pinot Grigio is completely different beast. Quite deep golden colour shows some age and development. Primary aromas have given place to notes of honey, honey suckle but this remains unmistakably Pinot Gris. Yes, some minutes are needed to get through all the layers and for all aromas to develop. It is dry on the palate with lovely complexity and depth of character. A touch tannins and lots of refreshing acidity, dandelion flowers, honeyed and raisiny, with very long finish.
