Wine description

Although Trentino regional white wines are sometimes considered light by international standards, the best of them have an unexpected propensity to age. But the emphasis remains on the popular Pinot Grigio. Despite the traditional flow north to German-speaking countries, the white wines of Trentino have been making steady progress in Italy and, recently, in foreign markets, such as the United States and United Kingdom.

Tasting notes

Straw yellow color with green highlights. The nose is delicate with aromas of pear and floral hints, on a zesty citrus background. The palate is dry and full-bodied, with a discrete aromatic persistence and a pleasant aftertaste.

Food pairing

Perfect as an aperitif or accompanied by clams, mussels, squid, octopus and grilled fish. Ideal also with salads.
