Pinot Grigio Classico is an aromatic white wine from Trentino Alto-Adige, a region in northern Italy. Manual harvest and selection of the grapes; gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks, aging on the lees in steel tanks for 5-7 months.
Pinot Grigio Classico by Cantina Terlano has an intensive straw yellow colour. It pairs stimulating fruit - reminiscent of grapefruit, lychee and white melon - with the floral aromatic character of a freshly mown meadow. With its finely balanced components – from aromas of black tea to exotic fruity nuances of melon and ripe grapefruit – this is a superbly full and at the same time mellow wine.
Best to be enjoyed with
The best way to pair Pinot Grigio Classico by Cantina Terlano is with South Tyrolean hors d’oeuvres such as smoked bacon, cured meats like Bündnerfleisch or venison salami, and their typical Italian counterparts like Parma ham, dried tomatoes and olive paté; herb risotto, nettle gnocchi or beetroot dumplings; lightly truffled dishes; tender veal and fine grilled fish.
