ABOUT THE WINE: Pinot Grigio has been at home in Alto Adige since the nineteenth century. The first "Pinot Gris" was introduced Burgundy by Archduke Johann of Austria in 1852. In the best areas of Penon (elevation 550 m./1,800 ft.), this Pinot Grigio develops a good, fiery, lean acidity structure. Natural winegrowing and rigorous restricting of yields produce only top-quality grapes. On the chalky vineyard terraces in a special microclimate, a unique, spicy-peppery mountain wine is born that is lush and full-bodied on the palate, reminiscent of tangerines, sliced yellow peaches, gooseberries, and fresh apples. The juicy finale provides a magic balance as a duet between the beguiling fruit charm and a subtle, lasting playfulness with minerals and long-lasting berries.
