Vernatsch is a traditional South Tyrolean grape, greatly contributing to the local wine culture through its uncomplicated drinkability. New quality parameters and modern production methods have ensured that its popularity has continued to increase in recent years. In the village Missian this grape finds the best conditions to create this succulent fruity and elegant red wine.
Pinot Grigio is of an intense straw-yellow colour, with a fragrant floral bouquet recalling locust flowers, sage and hay, almonds and sandalwood. After an adequate time in the bottle, aromas of linden flowers and honey develop. The wine wins over the palate with its fineness and elegance, and for its fresh full bodiedness.
