You’ll taste/smell: when you think Italian white wine, Pinot Grigio is always the first that comes to mind and with good reason! With this one, you can expect a light bodied delicate wine with fruity and citrus aromas and a pleasant acidity.

Good to have it with: basically you can’t go wrong with any fish dish here, but if you want to be creative try ricotta filled pasta shells; fresh mozzarella, pears, and roasted almonds or how about sushi!

Best to have it: 50-52ºF, 11ºC

Description

Brilliant light gold. Expressive nose of citrus, blackcurrant leaf, a tangy note, and acacia. A lightweight palate that allows full-on aromatic expression with aroma supported by savory exuberance. Delightful, modern and perfect with seafood pasta.

The Pierpaolo Pecorari winery is located in the DOC of Isonzo del Friuli. This is an unoaked Pinot Grigio yet it’s rich in texture due to the longer lees aging. The estate is known for its elegant white wines with great varietal character. Pierpaolo cultivates his grapes according to local tradition with a minimum of chemical intervention before they are cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks. Due to the low production of wine from this small estate (5,000 cases per year), special attention is given to producing a superior quality in each bottle released.

Alcohol Grade: 13%

Aged in steel tanks for 7 months on fine lees and undergoes weekly batonnage.

Aging Capacity: 4-6 years

Size: 750 ml
