Berry to Silk.
Shows in the long run.
This changeable wine, like a chameleon changes according to the circumstances and yet maintains its refines. Elegant and refined as it is, it dominates over any dining table, fluently expressing itself in various accents. Pinot grigio is lively and brilliant by character, turning from berry into silk in the mouth. Striking in the long run: what at first seems wild flowers turns into apricot and leads you far, far away from where you started off.

The grapes are delicately de-stemmed and placed in a pneumatic press for soft pressing without maceration. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks under a controlled temperature (16 - 18°C). This wine spends 6 months on the lees and is then bottled.
Dynamic, lively, fruity. Deep straw yellow in colour. To the nose it offers distinct aromas of pear and banana evoking images of a large basket of ripe fruit. In mouth it is soft, well structured, silky and perfectly balanced. Rich flavours linger on the exceptionally long finish.
Si sposa con tutti i primi piatti a base di pesce. Ottimo con i crostacei cotti a vapore, in modo da accostare il loro gusto dolce con la grassezza del vino. Si esalta con le capesante gratinate e i molluschi.
