Nose Highly agreeable, distinctly fruity, nose with slight floral hints, which enhance its freshness and give it an unmistakable character.
Picking time is determined by pre-harvesting tests that measure the degree of ripeness of the grapes, which are harvested when they reach their maximum intensity of aromas. The grapes are crushed in lung presses and the resulting must is fermented in stainless-steel heatcontrolled tanks at a temperature of 20°C. The wine is finished before bottling again in stainless steel, never in wood, at fairly low temperatures to preserve the typically fresh and fruity character of the cultivar.

Pinot Grigio has been grown in Trentino since the end of the nineteenth century and has become extremely popular with consumers worldwide over the last few decades, also due to the fact that it is being used to produce high quality wines. Pinot Grigio is grown throughout the north-east of Italy and has found a second home here in Trentino. It is rather finicky with regard to growing conditions, both in terms of climate and soil, while it adapts well to both the Pergola Trentina and Guyot as well as other espalier training systems.
