Fruili Grave DOC
About this wine
Delicate acidity and fresh, floral notes let you know that this is certainly Pinot Grigio, but then this develops as you taste, with a lovely oily texture that gives real body. Although this is certainly a dry wine, there are hints of honeysuckle and apricot flavours that add depth. It will remind you of a great Pinot Gris, and join you on all the best sunny afternoons.
A dinner party's best friend! This wine is the definition of a crowd pleaser, and also pairs wonderfully with a wide array of foods. If there's a lull in conversation, tell your guests they're drinking a Pinot Grigio, and that will be certain to get them talking!
