Pinot Grigio Collio DOC - 2019
Pinot Grigio gives its fame due to a mutation of its color from the famous Pinot Noir. Generally is possible to find Pinot Grigio in the mass-market arena for its neutral character and easy drinkability, but there are many exceptions to this rule where the varietal expresses its best in aromatics and fuller body. Friuli Venezia Giulia is one of them.
