Pinot grigio is the most popular imported white wine in the U.S. Some of the best Italian pinot grigio comes the mountain region of Trentino.
It’s the difference between day and night temperatures that’s perfect for the grapes, which are cold stabilized after crushing and fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the freshness. This wine is aged on the lees and undergoes frequent stirring the French call battonage.
The result is a lively and crisp wine with bright tropical fruit flavors that will keep memories of summer going throughout the fall.
