Pinot Grigio is actually the same grape as Pinot Gris, the noble grape of Alsace. Northern Italian producers tend to prefer to pick this variety a little earlier in order to retain fresh acidity and more neutral green fruit flavours. When labeled as Pinot Grigio the wine generally refers to this lighter, fresher style.
Pinot Grigio is one of the top, internationally renowned Italian grape varietals and has become one the most highly regarded Italian white wines. Unlike many Pinot Grigio, Righetti’s shows good mid-palate weight and fruit concentration. The nose has floral aromas with overtones of pistachios and just a hint of honey. The palate is soft and round with a long, clean citrus finish. Starting in 2017, Pinot Grigio from Veneto has the option of being labeled as DOC, and Luigi Righetti chose to do so as a means of guaranteeing quality. 11.9% alc
The wine has an intense straw yellow color, evolving to a richer yellow with aging. It has a fruity and fragrant nose evoking aromas of warm bread crust and intense perfume of acacia blossom and ripe tropical fruit. The palate echoes the nose and is elegant, medium-bodied with moderate acidity and delicate hints of yeast. A wine with a decisive character.
A pale copper colour with a rich aroma reminiscent of pear, banana, and acacia flowers wrapped in a slight scent of fresh apricot. The palate shows very good ripeness with flavours of pear syrup and quince. Good acidity, well balanced with a long fruity finish.
