In a nutshell: Light and zesty, easy-drinking Italian Pinot Grigio.
The lowdown: Made with grapes grown in the Abruzzo region of Italy that sits alongside the Adriatic coast. Gentle aromatics and a lively palate make this perfect for lunchtime or summery barbecue wine. The hints of honey and almonds are given interest by delicate herbal notes, and the refreshing acidity makes it incredibly moreish.
When to drink: More than a run of the mill Pinot Grigio, there's depth and fruit structure here as well. It's great on its own or partnered with a seafood salad.

Individual vine-growers contribute their grapes to the wineries based on personal cards recording all identification data of the production areas. During vintage, the agronomist in charge verifies the extent of maturation of the grapes and establishes vintage timing accordingly.
Upon arrival at the winery, grapes are selected by type, area of origin and sugar content, as these indications are fundamental to determine the wine quality potential. Wine-making is always based on cold vinification and soft pressing to enhance both fragrance and complexity.
