Pinot Grigio

Trentino Doc

The Pinot Grigio grape variety was first introduced in Trentino, circa 1875, under the name of Ruländer. The grapes harvested for the production of this wine come from the vineyards located on the Lavis-Pressano hill, cultivated in accordance with the Quality Project protocol, which aims to transform the vineyard into a flourishing autonomous ecosystem thanks to the harmonious synergy of environment, climate and man. Of intense golden yellow colour, Ritratti Pinot grigio has a rich aroma of pears and apricots with notes evoking flowers and honey. Soft and well- rounded tannins on the palate.
