This crisp and light white comes from the Cantine Volpi winery based in Lombardy in Northern Italy and is made from 100% Pinot Grigio grapes. Pinot Grigio is one of the world's most popular grapes and is also known under the French name of Pinot Gris. Something of a chameleon of a grape, Pinot Grigio is produced in a range of styles from the light, fruity Italian style that has gained such enormous popularity, to a more mineral, flinty rich wine favoured by the French, particularly in Alsace. This classic example of the grape is crisp and fresh and makes for a great accompaniment to grilled fish and light pasta dishes.
A very pale yellow in colour with green flecks. Aromas of green herbs, citrus fruits and green pepper. Bone-dry and refreshing on the palate with a sprightly acidity and a short yet clean finish. Try with pumpkin ravioli with sage butter, spaghetti with anchovy and oregano sauce or grilled trout stuffed with rosemary, thyme and garlic.
