Pinot Grigio wines and their flavours
Originally from Burgundy, on Italian soil Pinot Grigio has found huge global success. Even the most inexpensive Pinot Grigios are easy to drink and food-friendly. Simple Pinot Grigios have muted flavours of green apple and lemon.
To find high-quality Pinot Grigio wines, you need to go off the beaten track. The Alpine vineyards of Alto Adige and the eastern Friuli hills are famous for high quality Pinot Grigios. Here, you can find more nuanced wines with delicate flavours of ripe apples, quince, guava, pear and elderflower. Oak-aged versions will have additional complex notes of ginger and honey.
