TENUTA SANT’ANNA PINOT GRIGIO DOC
A lighter style of Pinot Grigo, full bodied and harmonious on the palate, perfect on its own or with a meal.
A grape variety of French origin, in Italy the Pinot Grigio vine has become the most famous vine all over the world. In the north-east territories (the regions of Veneto, Friuli and Trentino Alto Adige) it has found its ideal habitat and on completion of the white wine-making process, proposes unpretentious, full-bodied wines that easily accompany a wide range of dishes.
Pleasant to serve as an aperitif, it is a good partner for first courses based on fish and second courses of white meat. Excellent with pasta and clam sauce, seafood risottos, chicken suprême, rabbit stew with olives.
Once collocated in the presses the grapes are very gently pressed. The process for making white wine is started, separating immediately the grape-skins from the must, in steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Following this the wine is left “on the yeasts” for about three months in steel vats, to then be bottled and shelved for another two months.
