About Veneto’s Pinot Grigio
Among the many grapes produced in the Veneto region, Pinot Grigio is highly prized.
Pinot Grigio is a zesty dry white wine, as refreshing as any tall cold drink. It typically has a punchy acidity with flavours of lemons, limes, green apples and flowers.
Pinot Grigio grapes have a greyish-blue hue as reflected in the name. Categorized as a neutral grape, Pinot Grigio produces a mellow wine without the sharp acidity often found in other white varietals. It has a deep body while typically clean and easy-drinking. The Pinot Grigio grape originated in Burgandy, France (Pinot Gris) and made its way to northern Italy, becoming highly succesful in the hilly regions of the northeast.
Pinot Grigio is one of the most popular white wines in the world and because of this it is one of the wines that has suffered the standard-lowering impact of mass production. To ensure you drink delicious and interesting Pinot Grigio avoid the budget bottles sold under huge mass marketing campaigns. Lenotti’s Pinot Grigio delle Venezie DOC is a fine example of refined, small quantity artisanship.
