Name: Scarpetta Pinot Grigio delle Venezie IGT
Region: Friuli-Venezia Giulia
Varietal: Pinot Grigio
From the Winery:
"Scarpetta Pinot Grigio showcases some of the best sites in Friuli Venezia Giulia for this aromatic varietal - starting with the light, gravely soils of the Grave region. This gives it a crisp, clean minerality. Additionally, 30% of our Pinot Grigio is planted on 'Ponca' soil in the Colli Orientali on steep hillsides. The combination of the Grave and Colli Orientali let us produce a wine which has body, bright acidity, and great minerality.
Appearance: Light straw color with just a hint of salmon.
Aromatics: Aromas of both stone fruits and melon.
Palate: Showing Pinot Grigio's ability to be light on its feet but complex. Melon and stone fruits with minerals and medium body.
Food and Wine Pairings: Pinot Grigio has such a great range. Wonderful on its own as an aperitivo, with light grilled fish like sashimi, pesce crudo or ceviche."
