Appealing dry white wine, with great body and balance. Straw yellow, light amber tinges. Fruity and floral, with pineapple and wisteria blossoms. Will gain complexity over 2 to 3 years. Enjoy chilled at 12°C.
Refreshing and versatile, pairs well with vegetable and seafood based antipasta, a classic with fish dishes, lovely with risottos and vegetable soups, light white meat dishes and delicately flavoured cheeses.
About this winery:
Pighin family winery is situated in North Eastern Italy’s DOC region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia. Grapes are sourced from two different vineyards, in the renowned regions of Friuli Grave and Collio, which allows two different expressions of Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay. The Friuli Grave region named after its meager, chalky stone and gravel soils is ideal for white vine varieties.
