Pinot Grigio: fresh and fruity

Pinot Grigio Attems, which reaches the peak of its expressiveness in the vineyards located in the area between the Collio and the alluvial area of the Isonzo. The wine is characterised by a copper-tinged straw yellow. Its bouquet is marked by a impressive fruitiness, and the palate demonstrates all of the amazing qualities of the Collio: superb weight and viscosity, mineral-edged, savoury, tangy, and lively.

Serving suggestions:

Roast poultry and rabbit, even lamb, grills, stuffed meat dishes.

Tasting Notes:

This wine delights the eye with its luminous, copper-flecked gold-yellow. The bouquet is refined and enfolding, with well-ripened tropical fruit alternating with white peach and apple, enriched by spicy impressions of black liquorice, star anise, and white pepper. The palate shows superb finesse and proportion, impressing with rich, emphatic fruit and a zesty crispness.
