This iconic Pinot Grigio was put on the map by Mario Schiopetto, the first production of this Pinot Grigio was 1968. These grapes are grown in the hills in medium marl soil, they are all manually harvested and soft pressed with zero added sulphur dioxide, then fermented in stainless steel and refined on the lees for 8 months. There is a unique savoury palate on this Pinot Grigio with notes of banana and passion fruit on the nose and cantaloupe, lemon rind and wet rock on the palate. The persistent and complex finish is what this wine is known for. This is a Pinot Grigio suitable for collector’s that can also be drunk immediately. A must try!
