Pinot Grigio Valdadige

Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio is the benchmark by which all other Pinot Grigios are judged. Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio was named the leading Italian wine and continues to be requested by name. Its crisp, elegant character makes it versatile for a wide array of cuisines. Budbreak came later with the 2012 vintage than usual because of rain and snow that extended into late winter. This was followed by excellent weather in the spring that caused the vines to flower early. August turned out to be hotter than average, resulting in picking beginning ahead of schedule. The decision to harvest was made based on capturing the grapes at their ideal acidity and aromatic levels. The 2012 vintage displays its signature sensory profile, along with fragrant aromatics and freshness on the palate.
