Pinot grigio wine, italian white
The mere mention of Pinot Grigio wine tells the story of the boom in Italian white wine that took place between the 1970s and 1990s. For decades, Pinot Grigio is one of the most fashionable varieties of whites, exported in enormous quantities, and colonizing many winemaking areas of Europe and the world.
True Pinot Grigio originates in the northern Italian regions of Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige. It is pale straw yellow in color, with a delicate bouquet, and a full yet soft flavor. It goes exceptionally well with starters, in particular cured meat and cheese. For second courses, fish and white meats are indicated. It can also be served alone as an excellent aperitivo.
The propensity of this symbol of excellence for export, especially to markets like the United States, is not only synonymous with large volumes. In fact, the widespread affirmation of this Italian white wine has allowed for the creation of a base for the development and entrance of a number of smaller winemakers that practice their art in the pursuit of quality and uniqueness, with floral notes and other fascinating characteristics. This varietal is more than a trend.
