The uniquely Italian version of the well-known Pinot Gris grape is picked earlier, well before its characteristic loss of acidity at ripening. The result is a bright, crisp, dry white wine with a gentle perfume and a detectable spiciness. Fresh, fragrant and lively, its flavors include a certain flintiness with hints of citrus and almonds. Food pairings: soups, fish, light soft cheeses, deli meats. A perfect picnic wine.
