Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT
This pink-skinned mutation of Pinot Noir, arrived to Italy from France in the beginning of 1800s. Like all grapes under the large and aristocratic Pinot family, Pinot Grigio has a very compact bunch, reminiscent of the shape of a tight pine cone from which it takes its name. It demands much more care and attention compared to other grapes and it thrives better in cool, well-ventilated vineyards.
Pinot Grigio Kreuzer is our classic version of this variety.
