Overview

This celebrated variety derives from a bud mutation of Pinot Noir. Pinot Grigio favours cooler climates and finds its ideal habitat on the hillsides. Livio Felluga's vinification technique gives the wine finesse and elegance while preserving the faint coppery highlights that are Pinot Grigio's hallmark. Without doubt, it is the best-known Friulian wine around the world.

Reviews

Wine Spectator - August 2008 - James Suckling - 90 points

Rich and fruity, with pineapple, papaya and a hint of licorice. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and a lively acidity. Goes on for a long time on the palate. Intensely fruity. Drink now
