Umbria IGT Pinot Grigio
Dry white wine with a nice structure, straw yellow with greenish reflections, intense bouquet with notes of broom, acacia flower and honey; it has an elegant acidulous streak, nice minerality and a long and pleasant finish.
Pinot Grigio from vineyards trained with spurred cordon system, harvested between the end of August and the beginning of September.
From the first-pressing must, it is coldly vinified in steel tanks and kept on fine lees until bottling.
An excellent aperitif, it goes well with a wide variety of cuisines from different climates and cultures: from sushi to curry, to dressed salads, pasta and risotto with fish, seafood salads, marinated anchovies.
The decisive varietal characteristics integrated by the Umbrian habitat, with a climate typical of central Italy, give this wine a full and well-balanced character. It was the first Pinot Grigio to be cultivated in Umbria.
The stylized motif on the label is inspired to the 14th century quadrilobate tiles which decorate the façade of Perugia's Cathedral: a formal balance that interprets history, elegance and modernity.
