pinot-grigio

This distinctly delicate and ethereal aromatic Pinot Grigio marries harmoniously with our full-flavoured terroir characteristics, typical of all Perusini white wines, which originate from their hillside site and our rigorous cultivation techniques. The Pinot Grigio 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, savory, tangy, and lively.

Tasting card

  • Colour: A brilliant straw yellow.
  • Nose: Our wine is perhaps more reminiscent of the Alsace style of Pinot Gris than it is to the greener, lighter Italian style. Its perfume is distinctly tropical, with a pronounced banana and passion fruit quality.
  • Mouth: Full bodied, with a fragrant tropical fruitiness. With its pronounced acid structure it cleanses the palate, and has a long enduring finish. It has great balance and is the most viscous of our white wines, though it avoids any cloyingness thanks to its high acidity.
