Unterebner Pinot Grigio Alto Adige DOC 2017

This is not your typical Pinot Grigio. Made using hand-selected grapes from the Unterebner vineyard in Alto Adige, the wine is refined in large oak casks. After seven to eight months of lees contact, the resulting wine is rich, refined and elegant.

Tasting Notes

The Unterebner is a substantial Pinot Grigio that shows a deep straw color and a nose dominated by spicy and floral aromas. On the palate, it balances mineral notes with considerable weight and richness. Flavors of pear and apple are followed by white flower and subtle notes of vanilla with a long and lasting finish.

Food Pairing

This Pinot Grigio is ideal with a rich poultry dish like herb-roasted Cornish game hens.
