In the glass, the Pinot Grigio from Zaccagnini offers a brilliantly shimmering golden yellow color. This single-varietal Italian wine flatters the glass with wonderfully expressive notes of apples, honeysuckle, pears and acacia. There are also hints of other fruits.
This wine delights with its elegantly dry taste. It was bottled with 4.2 grams of residual sugar. As you would expect from a wine in the upper price range, this Italian naturally delights with the finest balance despite its dryness. Aroma does not necessarily require residual sugar. On the tongue, this light-footed white wine is characterized by an incredibly light texture. Thanks to its vital fruit acidity, the Pinot Grigio is wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate. On the finish, this youthful white wine from the Abruzzo wine-growing region finally delights with good length. Once again, there are hints of quince and acacia.
Vinification of the Zaccagnini Pinot Grigio
The basis for this elegant Pinot Grigio from Italy is grapes from the Pinot Grigio grape variety. After harvesting, the grapes are immediately taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. This is followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. At the end of this process, the Pinot Grigio is allowed to harmonize further on the fine lees for a few months. Once the wine is finished, the Pinot Grigio is carefully harmonized.
Dining recommendations for the Pinot Grigio from Zaccagnini
