Pinot Grigio Garda DOC, Santa Sofia 2014

Santa Sofia


Pinot Grigio, one of Italians famous whites, there are a lot of bad examples of this light elegant grape, but luckily we have found a brilliant example of it. This is such a crisp, refreshing example that's a joy to drink right away or keep (correctly) for 2-3 years. 

Production area

Grapes harvested in the Garda area, from vineyards planted on the alluvial soils of the moraine hills, east of Lake Garda.

Varieties
100% Pinot Grigio 

Description
A delicate, pale yellow with fascinating silvery hues, it has a fine and harmonious nose offering citrus notes of bergamot and grapefruit, tropical fruit, pineapple in particular, with hints of dry herbs and thyme. The palate has a good texture, very fresh and pleasantly acidic with its touch of lime, that leaves a very sapid, almost marine impression in the mouth. The finish is long, clean, coherent with the nose and induces to take another sip.

Food Pairings
light, freshwater fish recipes featuring trout, European whitefish or white-clawed crayfish. It ages well for up to 3 years, becoming increasingly complex as the time goes by, and better suited for more challenging dishes, such as risotto with perch.
